I’ve been using LiFe batts from Alex for many years now, even with old servos, with no regulator.

i power both off 1 battery. best method i found is fly a couple times, see how many ma goes back in. that'll tell you how much you using. look at specs for your servos. online. it'll tell you if they rated for 6v. been my experience 4.8v o nes work fine on 6v unless stalled. then they fry. had that problem with a few, replaced with my cheap towerpros and no issues since!

What wild Fred said. Fly two or three 5 minute flights then charge the battery. Then do the math off of how many MaH go back into it to find out how long you can fly before needing a recharge. It's good to do this with your batteries occasionally to see how they are holding up and if you need to adjust the amount of flights between recharges. I use same rules for my LiFe batteries as I do normal Lipo's to never discharge below 20% capacity.

He didn't say never use more than 20%. What he said is never go below 20%, he is using up to 80% of the battery capacity.

them bottles are all full! you better get to work! i don't think i ever drank rye, used to drink jim beam back years ago till it hank williamsed me too many times. I do like the homebrew... they opened a microbrewery about 4 blocks from me the other day! got talking to the guy, he agreed to sell me 55 lb. bags of milled 2 row on the cheap. the cost of my beer just went down to about 10 bucks a batch! since a batch makes about 8-9 six packs i'm 1 step closer to retirement!
