MT,

I'm not sure what your definition of "better performance" is but my interpretation of your meaning is that you want more thrust.

In general, you should always use NiMH or Lithium cells for DX series motors. NiCds cells at 1-1.5amp draw provide no advantage.

Your 7-cell 270mAh pack will benifit greatly by adding an 8th cell. My favorite pack for the DX-A motor is the 8-cell 300mAh NiMH pack from Radical RC.

I have 75 flights on my Pico Stick, 30 flights on my Tilde wing, and 15 flights on my super-Cannonshot. All 3 planes use the DX-A motor with the 8-cell 300mAh pack.

Good luck!
