    Thanks guys.
    I was under the impression that it was one of Ralph's so to limit it to 6V max. does make sense. I guess a set of Eneloops is best and simplest.

    I'd like to use a 2 cell A123, (LiFe) pack with this ignition. Can it handle 6.6V?

    Thanks in advance,

    Wing area on the original Snipe was 271sq.ft. Therefore 1/6th scale is 271X4=1084sq.in. or about 7 1/2 sq.ft
