    ATX and LiFE

    Any problems with using LiFE 6.6v packs with the FHSS-1 receivers?

    What about using a LiFE 9.9 pack in the SD-10G or RDS8000?

    Thanks!

    RE: ATX and LiFE

    2S Li-Fe packs are ok with ATX receivers and servos

    The Sd-10G voltage range is not really a match for Li-Fe cells. Their nominal voltage is the voltage our radio starts sounding the low-voltage alarm.
    The SD-10G was really made for 2S lipo if you want to run something other than the stock 6 cell battery or similar NiMH, NiCD or Eneloops.

    Similarly, the RDS8000 is made for 8 cells NiMH. a 3 Cell lipo is ok. A 3 cell A123 is a little low and a 4 cell A123 is really too high.
