Default Transmitter pack capacity.

I have a 6XAS with a 600mAh battery and after cycling it will only reach 492mAh. Is it time to chuck it and get a new one or does it still have some life left? I have noticed a shorter lifespan between charges.

Thanks, Gene

It is just above 80% of rated capacity. Personally, I would think of replacing it. Free-flight is not so good.[>:]

Safe Flying!

Thanks for the reply. I have already bought a 1650mAh NiMh pack for the Tx. I was hoping to keep the pack for a back-up but I probably won't need it any way.

Thanks, Gene

Before you chuck it try to recycle it. You can use it as a back up if needed. Otherwise, like the man said, chuck it.
