Unless things start going better for me, my flying season will not start till mid summer

Every time I start on something, something that should take 5-10 min takes all weekend

You got that right. My forecast on Joe Nall just got quite a bit brighter. The BIG job that had to be completed by June 1st just got pushed back a year! Now if I can get a few more things out of the way.

Battery Question

Hi Guys, over this long, long winter I built my 1st gasser. 3DHS 72" Extra 330 with OS 33 GT. Control servos are Hitec HS5645MG X 4 and a HS5485HB on throttle. To get the plane running and powered up I tossed in 2 NiMH 6V 2000mAh AA battery packs. All my servo extensions are either Hitec or JR all are heavy duty. Used JR heavy duty switches and used Power Box optical kill. Now...I would like to switch over to Fromeco batteries. Whats the hot setup & I am guessing I need regulator going to receiver??? I don't think I need regulator going to motor spark box? What battery's mAh should I get?

I would at least get in 4, 10 min flights before recharging. What kind of flight times should I expect?

Are there other I items I should also buy?

My forecast for Nall looks dark for me. New job and not having any vaca time prob not going to happen this year.
On a brighter note, Toledo is around the corner, the wife and I will be there Friday and Saturday

Fromeco is the best way to go, on a 30cc one 2600 7.4 on them servos will get you about 6x10 flights on a reg.set @ 6.2. Get an IBEC and put on it and cut the weight of the ignition battery and will act as a cut off as well. I let my 7.4 get to 7.5 before charging them, they will peak out at 8.4 at full charge

noah540...Duosport here! Is a IBEC from Tech Aero OK? I do like the idea of chucking ignition battery.
