I Philips, welcome to Ezone!
Check Cheap Battery Packs under loose cells. they have a wide variety of cells at good prices but currently don't have the 800s you were asking about. To find them just click on our sponsors on the top right corner of this page. I corrected the thrust line with a wedge of paper between the motor and the motor mount on the right. I had no choice as the prop was starting to strike the plane.
I have had several 300 mamp Nimhs packs from different sources and all of them have acted more like capacitors then real batteries. that is they need to be used hot off the charger (within 15 minutes of the charge) to get a full duration flight of about five minutes. This is true with my Wright Flyer, with my Sig Demoiselle and with my Vortex Cube when I still had it. Otherwise if I use the batteries a few hours after the charge I loose so much power after about 1 1/2 minutes that I no longer have enough energy to remain airborne. Good Flying to you! Mike
