    Hi
    Do you use rechargable batteries on transmitter? Manual says, the opreration voltage is 6V. Normal AA battery voltage is 1,5V but rechargable battery voltage is 1,2V. Is there going to be any broblem if use rechargable battery?

    The major issue with rechargeable is the voltage decay profile of the battery.
    A standard alkaline will decay in a progressive manner whereas a NiCad or nimh will maintain its voltage for a period then decay rapidly, probably when you least want it to.

    You can use rechargeables without any fear. A usual 2100-2400 NiMh set lasts for dozens of flights.
