The voltage in my TX with the rechargeables 1.2v now reads 5.3v in my HP6DSM with appox. 10/15 flights. How would this possible effect range. I've had my V4 down to one green light (in my 4040 ESKy TX) and my heli out as far as 200'/250' no problem. You just have to pay attention to overall battery strenght. My last post (or before) I mentioned using lipos in the battery compartment of TX's. Myself, I'm not too keen on this idea only because of the fact that a lipo can go bad without notice and possibly destroying the TX. I've never heard of it but, a 20 dollar lipo destroying a $100.00/$150.00/$300.00 TX. I'll go with rechargeables

I just step out my back door and fly If I were going to travel to a field to fly yes, I would switch to alkalines or keep my TX warm. I'll stick it between my legs
