FYI about 6 VDC NiMh batteries or even NiCds

I can assure you that I've fried several CDI module using unregulated 6 VDC batteries and decided to stick with the Manuafacturers recommendation...shoot they should know shouldn't they...they make 'em???

I have flown unregulated a123 and lifes on the rcexcel ever since they came out, i have yet to have one actually fail because of that (i had one fail due to the spark plug wire being cut from it rubbing on the cowl) and i mean 100s of flights. So i doubt that your batter caused it to fail on the first try unless it just came of the charger. I usually make sure mine are back to nominal before i fly...

Yea, this one actually says "operating voltage 4.8 to 6.0v. and life." 7.4 lipos and higher require regulator.

so it's kinda grey on the 6v cause a 6v is more like 7 fully charged... But it makes me believe 4.8 to 6.0v rx pack can be used unregulated. Just look up a dle 20 and see specs, or the 20cc ignition from valley view, it has the same specs. After I posted origanaly, I did do some more looking and don't think I fried it. not with a half charged 6v nimh...

The ignition on my new DLE 35 was titz up from factory. VVRC sent me a new one and worked like a charm.
