Battery in a Radio transmitter

I am into Nitro easy going high wings mainly and my Trannie has given up after 30+ yrs.

I now want a 2.4 Mode1 and have picked a Futaba 6K.Now,having gone through the specs I find the req batteries are single cells and I am not happy with that.Is there any info from you guys as to whether it can be modified to take a proper battery pack of 4 or 5 cell or bigger.

My old trannie ,an old 72 even used an 8 cell 9.6v 600Mah. I cannot find another 2.4 operating in Mode1,in my price range,Any help please will be appreciated Dougal

That's standard

The use of round cells, typically AA in size is normal for most low end/entry level transmitters.

radio from single cell to batt pack power

Hi There rcdude07
Yes I realise that is the case---having spent weeks going over all the new Radios, but I also think there must be a lot of aeromodellers like me that want to convert to a battery pack and have probably done it----- they are the ones I am trying to get information from.Like for instance changing Radio to a different mode.Told it cannot be done but have done it so yes it can !!!!------ and its not that difficult

Have you searched RCGroups.com. if there isn't info on that forum, then it probably hasn't been done.
