I would suggest trying Component Shop for transmitter and receiver batteries.

Receiver batteries were done to death recently. Warning - you may lose the will to live before the end of the thread.

Mark, KISS applies. Decent switch, decent battery, decent charger. Trusted supplier.

Thanks Don just trying to get my head around it all, seemed a lot simpler in the 80's. what I need I think is someone to say you need this battery for trans this for receiver and this charger and this switch, And these are for standard futaba servos as well,

If you ask five people on this forum, you will get six answers.

I would say Eneloop 2000 cells and an iCharger, but the latter is OTT if you are not going to be charging lithium batteries. I don't know about the switch, most of mine are Futaba.

Thanks Steve my trans has a Sanyo NIMH overlander 2000 mAh eneloop already in. Is that a decent battery and is that lithium.

It's a NIMH, NICKEL METAL HYDRIDE, it's the replacement for the nicads you remember. That is a very decent top brand battery. It needs checking, but if not broke, don't fix.

Eneloops are low self discharge (LSD) nickel metal hydrides (NiMH). That is a decent battery. Once you have a suitable charger, I would be tempted to cycle it couple of times (discharge at 1A, charge at 1.5A) to make sure that it is still OK.

There probably is a recent topic on here somewhere that discusses mid-range chargers.

By the way, as Steve says, Component shop will sort you out.

You pay a premium for the Overlander badge. The same pack from CS is a bit cheaper.
