An interesting question that I haven't thought much about. I would tend to suggest that a stand alone regulator would NOT be permitted.

D.2.4 REMOTE CONTROL EQUIPMENT
(a) The following is permitted:
(1) One or more receivers.
(2) One rudder control unit.
(3) One sheet control unit.
(4) Battery cells assembled in one or more packs.
(5) Electric cables, connectors and switches.
(6) One device to indicate the battery voltage. In addition, items listed under (1) to (5) may have their own built-in battery voltage indication.


Most IOM's now use an RMG and the like & regulator is usually built into the winch operation .

Personally I would not use a LiPo in a boat.. Too costly if something goes wrong.

LiFe batteries are generally much safer & can plug straight into RX.
