Questions?? AAA receiver pack...eneloop?

Is anyone using these successfully in a high amp draw, high vibration environment? Bought some to build as rx packs for my onroad cars, but everything I seem to be reading from the plane guys that are using these is that they're kind of fragile and experience significant voltage drop under high loads.

EDIT: also would appreciate input from anyone using these with 2.4ghz gear, since I've read that some have experienced brownouts in high current draw situations.

I dont recommend it.

I used enelop batteries for receiver battery in my mtx3. The battery cells wont last long as advertised, problem with false peaking, unsure with capacity for finals, and therefore i stop using it.

Lipo or LIfe is much better.

Why eneloop?
The only thing why you want to use Eneloop batteries is because they have a low discharge rate and is easy with equipment not using much current. As a receiver battery up to max 55 minutes of use (I do use 550mAh in 30 minutes) I always recharge it before use. So there is no need for Eneloop.

I use all Futaba and they last quite a long time. I haven't timed how long, but I'm never low on battery.
