1361 battery pack

I’m in the final stages of re-building a GRS 1361 tank and will be fitting with a train engineer receiver. I’m wondering what battery packs have others used and how have you laid out the RC as there isn’t a huge amount of space,

Hi Keith

do you know if anyone took any pix of Warton Road at Leeds which I could use for the G3 Newsletter?

Of possible interest are the NiMH AA cells I noted at IKEA the other day.  They are about 2400 mAh and only about a fiver for pack of four.  They are not tagged cells of course, so you would need holders.
