The easiest (and safest) battery for your radio would be the Enerloop (or other low self-discharge NiMH) cells.

You could use a lipo but I'm not a fan -- because they do have a higher voltage (which makes the voltage regulators work harder) and the first time you accidentally leave the radio on (and it will happen eventually), your lipo will probably be ruined.

Exactly why I still use my Futaba 9ZAP radios! User settable to automatic shutdown time. NOT good when instructing a student who needs little corrective input...ask me how I know! 2 $1200 (new) radios and a used $50 trainer goes out of control with instructor and student wondering what the hell happened!! :lol:

yeah. .my choice is perfect. .i have ordered 8 x AA eneloop batteries. .the price is not far from lipo battery. .for 8 batteries i paid $20 and for the 3s lipo i must change with $19. .i'm sure it will be better with eneloop batteries than lipo one. .what a fantastic price. . :lol: :lol:
thanks bruce for your advice.

Nope,I'm not using them in the TX, but they would be safer than the lipos I am using according the gurus. I am using them for RX packs tho.
