Lipo lasts really long but you have to watch the voltage or else the battery is finished if it drops below a certain level. I have been running lipo for a year now and haven't had a problem. You can run a 5 cell hump pack but they don't last as long as a lipo does.
My lipo will last me a whole week end of running!

Those receiver pack size 1400 Ni-MH deteriorate pretty quickly if you fast charge them. I used to charge them at 1A, they go bad fast. I charge them at around 0.2A, they last much much better.
