look in the battery thread

Your only significant improvement is going to be Li-polys- somewhat less volts than an 8 cell nicad pack though. But you should be able to clip a lot of weight- a 2 cell pack of 1200 Etec's might hack it, or a 2s2p pack of Kokam 1020s definitely will- which will also dramatically improve your duration.
