I recently bought a Jato and was wondering what the range was on the transmitter. I was out the other day and wanting to make some high speed passes but was worried about the range. I am used to planes and there is no worry on range on them. Is the surface 2.4 the same. I was in question because the transmitter only uses 4 AA cells which I guess is technically a 5-cell pack. Do they make a pack for the transmitter? Also what is the plug in the battery compartment for?
