I have rechargeable batteries but, as you know, this car requires a total of 12 AA. 8 for the transmitter and I can only charge 4 at one time, so instaed of going out and buying another charger
I was hoping to spend the money on a charger for the radio system. Also cut down on the clutter of battery chargers.
I'm new to the hobby and i'm finding out that there really isn't much info on the radio systems, mine didn't even come with instructions and i had to figure out what knob/button did.
an experienced r/c hobbiest would know what it all means and does, but for a newbie it can get very confusing and frustrating.
Thanks for the replies.
I understand the reasoning behind wanting fewer batteries. The most nitros I will allow myself to keep in the fleet at one time is three running, mainly because just keeping up with the AA's for the electronics on board can be a chore. Luckily the radio will run forever on a set of batteries, either regular or rechargeable. The servo batteries don't last as long. I run mine for about 8 tanks or one week, whichever comes first. The main reason I told you about the Turnigy's on Amazon is they come with a 8 bay smart charger and 16 batteries. This way you can put 8 in the radio and still have 8 to rotate in and out of your on board electronics, also the batteries themselves are very good. They last forever on a charge and are rated for 1000 cycles. Also as a side note, if you didn't know this already, rechargables are slightly fatter than regular batteries. If you put them in your radio, you will need to take a dremel and file down each end of the battery compartment just slightly so they will fit.
