Not at all, the current Spektrum RF section run on less then 4.8 through their RF internal voltage regulator.

The way is that 12 volts is put , with polarity protection to the transmitter and the transmitter is the "charger". At least in the Euro version. 2.4 transmitters use a lot less power
The telemetry is what I find interesting, I also read that it maybe can use some of the older receivers for telemetry, which will make me very happy. May be they can put in a climb indicator for the glider people.
