Which is better? What are the notable advantages/disadvantages to each?
Lipos provide more power and last longer. They also weigh less.
There are no real advantages of NiMh batteries over lipos.
ERBE, Summit, Thunder Tiger MT4
Thanks for the info. Sorry about this off-topic question, but how do I "rank up" from RC poster?
Number of posts. Also get lipo. If your going to stay in this hobby it's a real need. Prepare about $100 your first purchase, $60 for charger and 40 for battery. Done and done
Nimh cost more for less performance. A nice lipo goes for like 30 to 40 bucks. Even less depending on what mah and discharge rate u want.
