Default Building Reciver packs

I am building a reciver pack and was just wondering if 4 x 1.2v 800mah batteries is enough for a 45min final?

Thanks in advance

Id say you just might be able to make it but the battery might be really weak in the end and you really have to be sure that you charged that battery properly. But once your batteries get older and more used up they will not last as long anymore. So to be on the safe side I would still go with a minimum of 1100mah batteries and use the smaller 800mah for qualifying. Keep in mind that 4 batteries will only equal 4.8 volts which is definitely not enough. Normally servos run on 6 volts.

Yes, 800mah batts are enough to complete 45min final. My friends use 750mah for 1 hour final, but he re-peaked before final.

I thought Serpent 710 needs 5 cells ? Servos become lame with 4 cells.

4 pack battery lasts longer but has less torque and speed on servos! not recommended, gp 900s aaa repeaked before one hour main should last without any problem for digital servos, except on situations where there´s a rain delay!
