Default RE: RX battery choice

I use 6v 1800 mah NIMH as a matter of course in that sort of set up.

If it is the first time you are going digital do watch out for battery drain. Digitals are power hogs! If you have a smart charger see how much you need to put back in after 4 x 10 min flights.

I personally don't like the Lipo / regulator route [more stuff to go wrong] but if weight is really important then it does work.
