USS Kidd DD-661
« on: 22 April 2018, 12:53:21 »
First post here so don’t be too harsh, anyway, I’ve just collected an 1/96th USS Kidd DD-661 from a guy who has had it for 8 years but wanted to let it go but the problem is i don’t know which batteries that are needed for her to run properly and for a long time. Anyone know which batteries is the best to get?

Being as you have not mentioned what sort of motors or speed controllers are installed or will be installed in the ship, it's hard to say what sort of batteries you will be able to use...

It would not be very nice if I was to say, put some 2s lipos (7.4 Volts) if the motors are 12 volts.. then you would need 3s lipos..
The amps just refer to the amount of time you would like to spend on the water.. the higher the amps, the longer the run time..
Other than that, you can put in any batteries you would like, of course they would need to fit the space you have..
