What Battery are You Using in Your Tiger Moth?
Theres a great Tiger Moth thread by Basketcase about his Red/White TM started back last fall. Some discussion there on batteries but it seems that battery tech has advanced quite a bit in the past few months.
What battery do you use in your stock motored (IPS) Tiger Moth, and why?

I second Foamflyers suggestion.
I used to be one of the most hard core NiMH fans here. And still was after trying the QualComm Li Ions.
But, after using the Kokam 1020's and ETec 1200's for a few months I'm beginning to get converted. Better power than the QC's, almost as much as the 7 cell 2/3AAA's. And the duration is outrageous. One Kokam pack cost as much as two NiMH packs and lasts for three times as long. And the lighter weight always helps.

Etec 1200 2 cells with Dual Ips. Combination works so well I use it on my Cub and T-Ifo. Plenty of power and run times that way exceed my attention span.

I still use the QC's after over a year. I have 10 packs and get almost 1/2 hour per pack. That's 10 hours flying time for about $2.50 per pack. I'll use 'em till they die.
