Last time I was in the hobby was 1991. I recently sold all my old stuff, and would like to get new. I'm leaning towards the Duratrax Evader EXT2 to get started.
My question is with batteries and chargers. Last I remember, we only had 1200mah Ni-Cds and 15 minute timer charges. I don't want to spend a lot, so plan on buying a ni-mh battery. I'm thinking of going with an Onyx 7 cell 3000mah, 6 cell is same price but less performance. What do you guys think?
As for chargers, is there a way to determine charging times? I see most of the lower end charges from Tower are in the 2-4amp range. How long would it take to charge a 7 cell 3000mah battery at 2, 3, or 4 amps? Does it take longer to charge a 7 cell battery over a 6 cell battery with the same mah capacity?
Also, how much run time should I expect with a 3000mah battery?
