I mean my jr which x378 which also used to work on 8 nicads just as this old transmitter works well without voltage reducers, should it not be the same with this old transmitter ?
It will probably work. The possible issue is that a 3-cell LiPo puts out 12.6 volts, considerably more than the NiCd pack it's designed for, and may destroy the voltage regulators sooner or later. One solution is to charge the pack to 12v or less. The same is true for the 378.

A more important issue is that the radio may be illegal (it would be in North America) and being wide-band can interfere with other radios on the 72 band.
