Need info on an Ikarus pack! Please help!

I picked up an Ikarus 8cell 3000mah NiMH pack which, as I found out on the web, they sell for their electric helis. The pack number is 721052.

Can anyone tell me what type of cells these are? More specifically, I need to know if they can handle 40-45amps. I got the pack for my Multiplex B17, but on the maiden the motors shut off (still had control though) after about 3min of flight at WOT. On the second flight, the motors shut down again after only 1.5 min at 1/2 to 2/3 throttle. I want to find out if it's a problem with the ESC (Great Planes 50amp) getting overheated or if the battery cannot handle the 40-44 amps pulled by the four sp400 motors.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
