18650 Batteries in the 9XR Pro

Hi guys, I am swaping my LIPO batteries to 18650s, and I wonder if it is possible to fit them in the 9XR Pro.

Would the radio work with just 2? And the most important part, can I just plug them in the radio? And in which pins? I am very afraid of reverse polarity problems.

Re: What else can I upgrade in my radio?

Lol, yes, that should not be a problem. If I were flying Id keep using the Lipos for sure, but it is not the case. I am too afraid of crashing for flying. I use only ground and slow vehicles; tanks. So the battery last long. For example with a 5.000 ish battery I have, it lasts for 5-6 hours of non ...

Re: What else can I upgrade in my radio?

Well, they have a hard metal case around them, but if mis-treated they can also explode.

Re: What else can I upgrade in my radio?

Hi guys, after seeing a lot of videos of lipos exploding, and having two lipos puffed, I am beginning to be scared. I am planning to install some 18650 batterys. Are the Lion batteries safe? Or do I better stick with nimh?
Any link with a trustable source of batteries?

Thanks!

Feels good! The vibrations are not super strong, but I think is strong enough, definitelly more than noticeable.

Another mod I have on my radios is a self made switch board with a circuit that will keep the radio and RF module ON if the power switch goes bad.

Re: What else can I upgrade in my radio?

They won't be controlled directly by the 9xtreme board, but by the transistor.. But talking about safety, did you do the 100 ohm resistor mod in line with the RF module signal, pin 1 in the module bay? That resistor should protect the processor pin. By the way, NEVER insert or remove the RF module ...
