You know what I like about NiMh and NiCds? I can crash a plane with a nimh or nicd pack on board and find my plane, with undamaged electronics and engine instead of a smoldering pile of wood, plastic and servos, and I can reuse the battery pack!
NiMh also doesn't need a voltage regulator, can be charged fully in 15 mins and still fly all day.
LiPos are a great boost to the electric side of the hobby, but it's not really that big of a deal for glow.
