Default Lighter Battery Pack for NEON radio?

Mike,

I'd like to lighten things up a bit in my NEON (HS-55 servos) radio. The battery pack uses 4 full size AAA batteries. Is there any way to use a rechargable pack with, say, 1/3 AAA Ni-Cads?

Does Hi-Tec make such a battery pack? Can I find one somewhere else? Do I have to make my own? On average, how long would smaller batteries last in flight time?

Thanks for your help,
George

I forgot: the radio is for a small nitro-powered model. The batteries need to power just the receiver and servos.

Thanks.

Sure, I'd go with our new NiMh 750mah pack. http://www.hitecrcd.com/Accesories/battery.htm

They will last all day.

Mike,

How much does that HI-TEC battery pack weigh? I'm not so interested in duration-- I want to take an oz off the 2.1 oz weight of a 4XAAA battery pack.

That pack that you recommend looks like a 1/3 AA pack???

Thanks

It weighs approx 2 oz. You can use any 4.8V battery over about 110mah if you want.

Yeah, that's kind of heavy. I need something much lighter.

Does anyone make a battery pack for 4.8V and 110 mAH? Where should I look? Does HI-TEC sell a connector for an alternate battery pack?

Thanks for your help.
