Are they worht it for the radio receiver and transmitter? I mean with the cost of the batteries and the cost of the chargers are they worth it in the long run? I have heard that NiMH batteries will wear our over time.

Thats all I run now:) They are a little on the high side but give a better current rate then nicads. And if charged right will last just as long as any other battery out there, you just dont want to over charge then. Do you have a good charger now???

Then youll want a good peak charger or you run the chance of killing your batteries in a very short time. I like intellipeak they work good for me, but do some shopping and see what you like.

Hehehe Lith Ion batteries require some pricey chargers too! But hey, if you got the cash, roll with it. Otherwise, NiMh is very good and NiCd's can be too! A good charger is key. I went with the Quasar Pro by Reedy. It has delta peak detec, fused, rapid charge, cycling up to 10x, full discharge with charge and all kinds of Amp ratings to play with. 4-8 cell charging. Oh yeah A/C AND D/C.

Cool stuff........
