Henry A lot of things could be happening with short battery life. I use a 4 cell 150 ma NiMH and get about 40 min of flying time. That is after I have cycled the new battery several times. Not sure what would cause the bussing. I have had that problem on other servos and never got it corrected, but now I use JR 241's and have not had the problem with them. I did not notice/associate the bussing with short the batter life, but that have been an oversight.
