What is a good battery pack that is not too expensive and will work with my stock HPI radio gear? And how will I charge it? I already have a multi charger.

thank you

The cheapest solution is to buy 5 of the rechargeable AA's from Tower and just solder them together with short lengths of wire. If 5 AA's are too big, but some 2/3-3/4 A cells instead. It shouldn't be much more than $2 a cell.

HPI's instructions for making a battery for the Micro RS4 will work here, though you may want to tweak the shape to better fit your radio box.

You're welcome. Sorry I couldn't help you with the charging.

It's a pity more people don't realize that you don't need to spend $30+ on a pre-built receiver pack when you can build one for as little as less than half the price.
