Default RE: increase battery Mah

You may use any 8 cell battery of any capacity with your transmitter.
The transmitter uses 9.6 volts. How long it uses those depends on the battery capacity.
A 9.6v 2000 mah battery will last far longer than a 9.6v 1000 mah battery.
If the battery is a Nimh, it will last longer than a nicad of the same voltage and capacity.
For the receiver, 7 servos is a lot, and the battery will need to be larger in -capacity- for the load.
Nominally the receiver uses a 600 mah 4.8v battery.
Go at least twice that, or even 3 times, for peace of mind.
4.8 v, 1500 mah.
