Battery Capacity for a 20cc RC airplane

by Cristian

Hello, I am putting together a 20cc plane in which I installed 5 servos hitec HS-5645MG and a receiver spektrum AR620 with a ubc of 6 v output for receiver.

My question is: what would be the necessary capacity of the battery to supply the current demand of the 5 servos.

I put a lipo battery 2s 1500mah. But the servos fail to stop working apparently for lack of current.

As stated in another reply to you, you need 2 different battery packs: one for ignition and one for RX.
