Hi Clu,

I'm using Sanyo 1650 NIMHs from eflightpower. Eflightpacks carry these also.

These packs weigh about 3.5 oz more than the SR battery pack, but they fit in the cutie battery bay without modification. You do have move the pack to the end of the bay, and I had to go with a little bigger tail wheel to balance. Other than that, no problem.

My cutie on the stock motor does not seem to know the weight differance. Also, I have not timed my flights, but can go longer than the glow guys who take off with me. I usually land after about 10-12 minutes out of boredom, with plenty of juice still left.

Best Regards, Mickydee.

P.S. the assembled packs are less than $30.00 from either of the above vendors.

I wouldn't recommend the Sanyo 1650mah NiMh for motor uses. I only recommend them as a replacement battery for transmitter to give you more stick time. I only recommend R10-600AE which you can purchase for $25 a pack.

Is the link you added correct? Couldn't get to your website with it.

I use 8xCP1300 in the Cutie, with a Turbo 450 direct and a 7x4 prop. Nice combo for a video cam setup. I may try the 8.5x5 Aeronaut soon..

There might be time where my site is inaccessible and I have asked the web site hoster to look into it. I am fully aware of the problem even though it's intermittent. The link is eflightpacks.com

Thanks guys...


I guess I should have asked what motor /prop combo you are using if it's not the stock Graupner 400 w/2.33:1 gearbox.

Thanks!
