Default 5955 Battery Needs?

I'm in the process of setting up my first 33% plane and will be running seven 5955 servos and two standard servos for throttle and choke. For Christmas my wife bought me what she thought I was planning to use for batteries; redundant 1900 mAh sub-c high discharge low impedance (4 oHms) Nicads. I fly mainly intermediate IMAC stuff and get in only 5 or 6 flights in a day. Will this setup be enough battery?

Thanks for any info.

Dan,

The high discharge low impedance sub-c cells will be fine. You didn't mention the pack voltage; 5-cell 6.0V batteries are best...

You are more than fine. You will get about 10 flights if not more from those batt's.

I have 8 5955s on my C-A Yak 2.6m. It consumes 600-650mah juice each 16min flight. I am running single 2200mah sub-c nicad and it gets me 3 16min flights or I chage between flights. It takes about 15-20min of 1c charge and the pack is full again.
