8x720nimh with mini laser3d motor?
I have an extra geared motor from my mini laser 3d kit. I think they are a 370 motor. Can I use 8x720nimh with it? I dont know how many amps the motor draws.

You'll get a lot of different opinions on this, but if I recall correctly, the ML3D motor/Prop (as supplied with the kit) will draw in excess of 10A on 8 cells. Very much above where the AAA NiMH will be happy (you will see lots of voltage suppressions). If I am wrong about the current draw, then I apologize. If it is more like 5-6A then you should be fine. I almost hate to give an answer to your question because someone will argue that the AAA cells are good to 25A and fly a 12lb model with authority, etc.
Give them a shot and see how (if) hot they become.
