LiFe pack may not require the use of a voltage regulator


John G., Futaba Product Support Lead Technician, says that Futaba does not recommend the use of lithium based batteries with their receivers and servos.

Spektrum said their receiver's will handle 6.6v, but most servos are limited to 6v; (so) you may need to run a regulator.

I emailed Red Scholefield of Model Aviation Magazine back in early March to get an authoritative answer to the direct powering of LiFe to Receiver/Servo question. I'm looking forward to a article answering that question.
