Battery Runtime for GWS Zero or other 370 models
Hello all! I have a GWS Zero that I have flying perfectly but am ready for a little more runtime. I was previously running a 8cell 900ma NiMH pack that weighed in at 6 oz. This pack had great runtime and power but really increased the overall "float" speed of the plane. I have since switched to 2 packs that I built using 8 AAA 750ma NiMH cells I got from local walmart. These ended up at just under 4oz per pack and really made a huge difference in the planes slow speed performance. The plane can almost slow down to the speed of my GWS cub and then it can power up and climb on a nice steep angle. I love this plane. However the down side is my run time currently is about 3 - 5 minutes. I had throttled down under half throttle and was slowly floating accross the sky but still could only get 5min 30 sec. I have charged and discharged the packs a couple of times to cycle in the new cells (done with peak charger and discharger was cut at 6V). I have a couple of other batteries to try and just wanted to know what others were using.
