Theres a rack inside the radio, and it holds double AA batteries. I was wondering if I put rechargeable batteries in it, I can use it as a pack

If there is a jack for it, I think you can

There was a similar topic in the electric on-road forum about M8 rechargable batts... you should check that out...don't just trust me.

Here is the picture of the rack that came with it. I'm going to get some Sanyo batteries, and a charger will this work?

What type of charger are you using? When using wall type charger, you can plug it directly into the Tx. However, I have heard that many do not recommend this as your Tx can burn.

If you have a good charger, you can take out the tray and use it to charge your Sanyo batteries in series. Check your charger manual first if it can charge 8 cells. You can use crocodile clips to clip on the respective polars to the charger. I charge my 9 AA Sanyo NiMH battery pack at 0.5 to 0.7 A.

If you are using the charging jack on the Radio system you can only use a trickle type charger.
If you remove the pack from the radio system you can use a normal quick charger.
