    Battery

    Is there a big down side to having a 9 cell NIMH battery pack other than weight. If you system can handle that voltage.

    If your ESC can handle a 9-cell, it should be able to handle 3s (aside from the lipo cutoff).

    As far as just running a 9-cell, there should be no problems with running it, other than it being able to fit in the battery tray

    With a 3s Lipo, you have more power and punch. You will also have longer continuous power and runtimes.
