TX Packs

Select Your Pack From the List Below


FutabaOver the last year or so, here has been a lot written in the model press and online about the use of LiPo packs in Transmitters.

While we can never be sure about how much of this is real and how much is smoke and mirrors (no smoke we hope!) there does not seem to be a voltage issue as such.

Most radio's were designed to run dry cells, and as we all know you can get new dry cells at 1.6 volts, 1.6 x 8 = 12.8v - a standard LiPo will show a full charge voltage of 12.6v.

As an alternative to NICd or LiPo, You can always use NiMh's but they have a few issues as well such as self discharging when idle and false triggering when charged on field chargers to quickly. we have also heard that the newer High Capacity NiMh packs are very fragile..

At AG Power we have developed a new Lipo battery pack to replace the old tired Ni-Cd packs. These new packs provide ~3 times the duration at half the weight! Now you can charge your radio once a month, instead of once a session!

Perfect for Futaba, JR, Spektrum and other popular radios that take a brick style pack. No modifications are required, just install the pack into your radio with the JR or Futaba style plug and fly!

All transmitters are programmed to sound a Low Battery alarm and this will allow safe time land the plane and charge your battery - these alarms appear to be set at voltages that Are compatible with LiPo TX Packs (check your radio instructions to confirm - AGPower TX packs should not be taken down to below 9v).

24 hours run time with almost no self discharge while not in use....

We do however have to point out that while many 1,000's of flyers are happily using LiPo TX Packs, the use of such packs does invalidate your manufacturers guarantee. Also, this battery must only be charged with a Lipo approved charger and not via the Charge port on your transmitter.
