    I always use a separate battery for the smoke pump, but in an install where weight is a premium, I can see the desire to share the RX battery.

    Does anyone have more info on the big F-15E with the cool grey (arctic?) camo scheme? Curious if it's the Fei Bao, and what was used for power, etc.
