Default 5 Cell AA Receiver packs, opinions??

Has anyone made there own receiver packs, or used the ones made with AA rechargable batteries? Im thinking of making my own with the 2700 mah orion AA cells and was wondering if anyone has done it before or used the AA packs before, how well they hold up?

I think Mugen makes 1 some guy I know uses its a 5 cell hump and he goes all day never seen him charge but that has to be heavy as hell though. Stickman makes them too.

I cant see the weight being that different, the AA's are long and thin, and the standard cells, are short (about half the length), but fatter, weight has to be really close

I run em and love them. Other than lipo they are the best. I have run the ballistic batteries and stickman rc versions. Very long lasting packs. They last me all day without charging them and I don't have to worry about them like you do lipo(to some extent). If you don't want to run lipo or spend the money for them the AA packs are a good bet. I really like the ballistic batteries one. It is made with 2700mah sanyo batteries. they are bigger and are a tight fit in some cars but if you can get one in there you will be happy. Both of the two companies make normal and losi style configurations. Or of corse you can make your own. As for weight they are slightly heavier but I havent noticed the weight when driving with them. So ya they are good.

I made myself one for my buggy, and it's worth it It supplies more than enough current, and is a noticeable improvement from 4 cells.

Best reciever packs I have used are Stickmans, he does great work and stands behind his products. If you go to Stickmanrc.com to read about them and get them you will not be disappointed.

+1 very good batteries.

You need 5 cells to get 6 volts with nimh but if you were using an alkaline AA setup only 4 cells are needed. NIMH cells=1.2v Alkaline cells=1.5v.
