Greetings all,

Have purchased a second hand Lyn with RCS system already installed, but batteries were bust.  What batteries (NiMH or LI-ION) would fit the side tanks.  Its wired for two 7.2v batteries, but am having trouble finding a source for ones that will fit. 

I have seen the posts that Tony has made about installing r/c in a Lyn. 

Thanks ahead,

David H

Hello David.
The original way I did it was with custom made 6 x cell ENELOOP hybrid AA batteries supplied by Master Instruments in Melbourne.
The latest version use one 4s Li-Ion pack using 18500 1.7 ampere hour cells.
Being Li-Ion, only 4 x cells are necessary and the pack fits easily in one tank.  The weights are left in the other side for balance.
However, compared to the more common 18650 cells the smaller sizes are a bit more expensive.
If you make the packs yourself make sure you fit a protection pcb in the pack.

I don't own a Lyn but I do have a 1:20 Porter that I converted to battery. They seem to be the same size, and I used a NiMH 9.6v battery pack in each side tank (connected in series). The can be had for about 15 dollars each from
