rcphreak, I am not sure about that. I dont see how lower TX voltage relates to shorter range, until the TX voltage gets to its minimum voltage. Are you sure thats the way it works? I think you may have seen planes eat the dirt because the rechargables simply didnt last long enough and dropped below the minimum TX voltage. If I was going to "the park" I think I would throw in a set of brand new alkalines, or have the capability of "refreshing" the rechargables at the park. But I have only flown at home except a couple times and have not done any charging in the field.

But I have run both types in my camera also, and the rechargables simply run out of "juice" considerably faster.
