For about the 15th time from the other thread, it won't work at all. The 8.4 volt NIMH Ray0vac has to high an internal resistance to work with a speed 280.

As you found out, it can work but the motor wants to draw more than the 9V battery can provide. The battery will get stronger at first, then noticeably weaker after a few dozen flights. One of mine is at half capacity from abuse.
Since these are so cheap, you can use 2 in parallel and then get very long flights and provide the current.

You can remove the casing on a GE/Sanyo 9V NiCd battery. Inside are 6 AAAA size cylindrical cells. Just be careful not to short it out, as those little NiCd cells generate a lot of heat right now.
