Default Add to Run Time???

If I connect a small battery pack into my reciever will it add to my fun time and possibbly give me more power?
Thanks

yes it would. but the advantage would be neglagable. Your better off just saving the weight of not having a receiver pack.

Jhigga we only use reciever packs on 12scale to power the servo because its faster and doesnt get lag from running mod motors that suck amps and make the radio system vltage drop.

Some guys run them to power small fans.
The extra run time is minimal 10 maybe 15 secs at best. For anything other then mod your just adding wieght to the car.

When you comming out to C springs?

Well...I run 1/12th and I gotta ask, would hooking up a capacitor to the Batt hookup on the receiver help with the servo speed and prevent the electrical system from "browning out" when gunning a modified???

Adding a cap in the 12th scale application may help some.

However, I am not sure on this, but I would think with only 4 cells, there is less voltage going to the receiver. You could only get a max voltage of whatever the battery is. 4.8 volts nominal. Most BEC voltages with 6 cell application is running 6 volts. Therefore you have 25% higher servo speed.

I dont think it will work. With a rec pack you'll have a constant voltage supply versus a short burst from a cap.

In theory it sounds good but I would say realistically no. Remember a touring mod is running a 6 cell pack already so the browning out wouldnt be as radical as per say in a 12 mod where the sys is working with 4.8 vlts which is the minimum the radio system will operate with.
