Default wow....thats a high price

those things aint cheap.....is their another way, the 2000mah nimh battery dies quick and im still doing settings i dont even know if it starts yet, because i had no cash, i traded a new 50cc scooter for a raptor30 v2 /all electrics/ and a jr xp662, radio, i getting to think i should have heard it run first....sucks having no money, but whats done is done....i stil need a starter and shaft, and i got to get some fuel and few odds and ends...the guy said it ran. and flew, but after watch rays dvd's a friend had, i dont know how it flew, the set-up wasnt right, i turned the motor just 1 click...i have to get some kind of oil in there i quess before i spin it....it looks clean, but im thinking i got screwwed.....live and learn....thanks to all for any help....

if anyone got any feild equiptment they dont use and want to sell cheap....it gonna be awhile before i can start it

i wouldnt run a helicopter on a nimh receiver pack. in my experience they loose voltage faster than lipos. i run a 2s lipo with a regulator in boyh my nitros. there is no fall off of voltage as there would be with an unregulated nimh or nicad. id not use anything less than a 3000mah. i use 5200's and a 3600.

i only use nimh packs to do setup
