Default Battery Voltage???

Help... I am building an airboat and will be using 3 servos. 1 for the throttle and 2 for the steering. Will a 4.8v Rx battery be enough? Or do I need a larger battery.



Thanks in advance,
Nick

Nick: You didn't say how large the Airboat was going to be, but if it isn't much larger then a .60 size, the standard size 500 - 700 mah pack that you received with your radio should be adequate.

It is going to have a Magnum GPA 40 on it. About 3 1/2 feet long. The battery pack i had in mind was a 1200 mah nmdh pack.
