thanks. I thought that I needed a high mah pack because of the big rudder servo. so under 1000 mah will work? I don't have any way to hook AA to my receiver.

That would be fine, servos don’t take a ton of juice but pay close attention to how many ma’s you are adding back in the first couple of runs so you do not have issues.

today I got the 4 screws I needed for the coupler. I won't be able to get much of any work done on the boat until next weekend though because I have finals all week.
