Cheers

Thanks Rapid Roy! can you redirect me to the link? or at least where you saw that post.. I was thinking of plugging it with the plastic ends (don't know what it's called ) used on the Hudy hex drivers..

has anyone here tried 9 cells on their 3pk/spektrum?

Thats what I had. The battery has to be really charged before it stops. I am going to try to get a 9 cell pack for the 3pk
