Sounds about like ours. Think we got around 15 - 20 minutes total out of the stock pack with him just doing some slow playing. It even seemed to go through the grass pretty good, But I'll probably cut the backyard a little shorter for him the next time.

Planning on a few purchases from Hobbypartz in the next few weeks as soon as they get some batteries back in stock.

Planning on this [link=]charger[/link],

may be a couple of [link=]these Batteries[/link]

and [link=]this[/link] or [link=]this [/link] Voltage monitor.

Just out of Curriosity, how important is it to have one [link=]Safety Battery Charging/Storing Bag. [/link]

Anyone have an idea when the voltage of the LVC is on this ? I know when we were about done running it, it stopped a couple of time, and you could wait the 10 seconds then drive again. I did not notice the ESC making the beeping sound that is mentioned in the manual, but we were also 20 feet away at the time.
We saw the same thing when we first got ours and basically that's it for the battery. If you keep trying to drive it, after giving it a breif pause, you're just really draining the battery. The LHS also thinks that's why the ESC was losing throttle info in memory was because Jr. kept trying to drive it after getting the warning. As soon as it shuts down it's basically time to turn off and start charging battery.
