And remember a 2300 NIMH pack cannot provide the current that a LIFE pack can typically. Load up NIMH and watch the voltage drop off, especially high capacity packs.

Re: Rx pack and ignition pack SIZE??

I'd like to add to the above questions if I may?
I'm putting together a 40 size Piper Pawnee and am going with an Evolution 10cc. One of you kind folks pointed me in the direction of using the Ultra IBEC module.
I have one here to install but I seem a little confused as to how to set everything up. ( GAS NOOBY )

Do I still require two batteries and are they both plugged into the receiver?

I know from reading some old threads that there was a worry that engine noise or ( Electronic Ignition Module ) would effect the receiver but now with the newer technology (IEBC) that this is no longer an issue?

I'd like to switch everything over to Life packs because I'm getting tired of NiMH and having to constantly monitor them over the off season and hoping they will still be of any use the next.

Needless to say I end up just buying new packs every year.

The Pawnee uses 7 ds821 servos but I am going with a stronger one on the throttle just in case.

I'm not sure of what capacity of a Life battery I should purchase to run the system and would appreciate some help in making that decision.

My other concern is do I have to use an engine dampening feature on the mount because of vibration? I have glassed the entire Engine mount and Firewall and installed some dowels to re-enforce it.

Thank you,

Re: Rx pack and ignition pack SIZE??

A 2000 mah life pack should get you four to five flights safely. Flying 3d on a 50cc using savox 1256 servos I get four flights with pleanty to spare. As for running dual packs for the reciever a lot of guys on the smaller planes don't. But for extra insurance and peace of mind if you have the room and don't care about the weight I say yes. I've never used dampners on any setup for gas. In my mind they compound the vibration.
