Need a new battery pack for my GWS p51 and Zero What should I get?
I just picked up a new GWS p51 and have had my zero since they first came out, I have the stock GWS 300c in both and have been using 7 and 8cell maxcell and rayovac AAA packs, I want a better pack that I can use in them, What do you guys recomend?
Would AA cells be to big?
Also I can not afford to spend alot so if you could please send me links to any places that have really good deals on batteries. I thought about Lithium cells and a charger What would you recomend here and how much do you think the setup would cost, Also would the setup work in my piccolo and light stick?

Hello Jay, AA cells or 2/3A nimh cells would work but will also add a few ounces in weight to your plane. You will see a bit of a performance increase over the AAA's though as they can handle the current better. A 2s2p Pack of Kokam 1020's (2040mah, 7.2v) will also work excellent in the P51 & Zero. They are the same weight as a 7 cell AAA pack with approx. 2.5 times the duration. I also carry inexpensive "starter" chargers that work well with the 7.2v packs. Please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org for more details if you are interested. Thanks

they are somewhat expensive but i use the trickrc 500 mah zagi packs in my zero
as for the 51 so far all i have used is the 720 8 cell nimh pack from edogfight.com
and i just picked up a gws 730 for trilas this weekend although i don't reallly expect too much performance from it yet as it has not been cycled a few times at this point

I do have a radioshack 9.6v 1000mah AA pack, Do you think this pack would work? I am using a 5 amp esc so If i use this pack should I drop down to a 9x7 prop?
also which AA batteries work good, where can i get these at online?
