If you want recargable cells for you RX then just get loose AA cells and put them in the battery holder

For the Rx, it aint hard, just "hot glue" them together in the shape you want and the connect them "pos" to "neg"

You are better off,(if you have to ask) just buying a ready built pack

It is not that difficult. You can just get five rechargeable AA-cells and connect them. That way you get 6V. You connect from + to - all the way and put a connector's wires to the first battery's + and the last battery's -. When you charge them you connect the charger to the pack's connector. And the more powerful the batteries are, the better it is. But remember to get good quality batteries.
If you buy a hump back it normally is approximately 1100 mAh, but if you make it yourself it can be over 2000 mAh.

But the problem with the box that contains the electrics on the Ultra Comp is that it is way to small so it can be difficult to put it all inside. I have placed the batteries outside mine, but I am looking for a better solution on that point.
