perfect fit for my erevo. anyhow what to do with the 7 cel nimh batteries. they are still reasonably new, tried to sell them on a few forums and no one interested.no biggie.i expected that as lipo is all the go.so rather then let them rot i scratched my head for ages to think of something to use them on.
so i grabbed my wind up torch/radio unscrewed it and took a few videos of me modifying it.yesterday i made up a y cable for for and now im running both batteries to it

Great batteries zed! I use the Turnigy nanotech LiPos for my heli, and with a high C rating they are perfect for quick throttling in inverted 3d flight. $40 bucks for the ones i use, compared to the Kong Power $200 packs of a couple of years ago is a bargain and a half. So far i have had no problems with balanced charging at all:)

Heres the ones i use http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__11917__Turnigy_nano_tech_2650mah_6S_25_50C_Lipo_ Pack.html
