Hi mate, I bought 5x AAA cells and soldered them together. I put a BEC plug on the end and then made up a BEC to SERVO plug to plug them into the RX. I charge the pack up before each run at .7amp, which takes around 5 minutes to charge. I run a 9x2 in my 12th car and the RX pack will last the whole 8 minutes no problem at all. Some people will double the pack up (3x cells on the chassis with the extra 2x cells glued on top) whereas I have mounted 3x cells to the left hand side of the servo with the other 2x cells on the right hand side of the servo. I hope that helps mate, Chris.
