Hey Guys,

I have looked all over this entire thread and cant seem to find how to create a receiver battery pack for the 720, been given some drawings and some images but need a image of differant angles showing the entire setup and how the plugs are layed out.

Can you 720 Guru's help a new serpent lover!

Cheers
Frankie - Cant wait for the snake to land in my hands SOON!

use 5 pieces of AAA batteries. depends on ur receiver, but usually 3 pins, so the 1st pin is (-) black and 2nd pin is (+) red, 3rd pin is signal which is useless for battery pack. build as in drawing.

* Note: (+) Red. Positive wire is longer than (-) wire. use glue to hold each cell together when soldering.

good luck..!

I would advise you to make sure the connections between the cells are flexible. Especially between the top mounted cell and te one below it.

During crashes the top cell has a tendency to move (also slightly due vibration) and you will experience problems if the connection is rigid.

Before I switched to the Xceed lipo pack I used a long wire (about 5cm or 2 inches to connect the top cell to the rest of the pack and laid it in the recess between the cells.
