Six cell? You mean 5........do you not?

You need to go for as high a mAh as you can find with as small (in weight) as you can find.
The Ntc3 will accept a hump pack. A 3-2 configuration but as Team Kamakaze advised, I would go with a flat "stick" pack. Lower centre of gravity and there's plenty of room for it.

I dont have a ntc3 but I switched to a lipo receiver pack few months ago and love it. Saved 60g in weight from my 1200nimh pack.

I am using VXR racing lipo pack, I am not sure if its better then others out there but I have seen it around a bit so I thought I would try them. I got mine from rcplanet in malaysia. Bit hard to buy lipos online if you live internationally from the store and rcplanet was the only one who I could find that sold vxr and would ship it.
I have seen in hong kong at rcmushroom premium power lipo receiver packs bit cheaper and they seem to ship internationally. But I noticed the premium power packs are bit larger in size to the VXR pack I got.
Only problem I had with VXR was the 6V regulator I purchased for the lipo pack had a bad/loose connector so I replaced the connector myself and its all been good.
Here is a link to rcplanet, if you need more info just do a search for VXR racing products to find the homepage, maybe give you dealers closer to you etc. I am using 1000mah receiver pack.

You are correct, 5 cell it is. I don't know what I am thinking.

lol..............I thought you might be letting out speed secrets for a mo, extra servo power .....lol

Although, I need to learn more about these LiPo RX packs and voltage regulators. Maybe there is something there to be had in weight loss and run time.

I run the G4s and we are only able to run AAA and so restricted in RX run time. Especially when running Digitals and Spektrum.
So I think there is some learning to be had there for me.

Menace i am playing around with this idea of Lipo pack.
I got some 1800 packs and you can get bigger but dont see the need.
Problem is pack wont fit in std position on the G4S but it does fit in the reciever tray with some squeesing and moving the reciver to where the batt std batt locates.Is very important to have a regulater as well.
Overall i am not sure if it saves anything on the weight side but is definately a plus on the power for electronics and run time.
Just from this change its like you have new servos, works so much better and faster.
