With the notable exception of some models of MKS servos just about any servo rated for 5-cell NiMH (6v) will easily handle an unregulated 2S LiFe pack. I run nothing but 2S Hyperion LiFePO4 packs without regulator in everything I fly. My X3.8, Aspire and AVA Pro all have Futaba S3150 servos in them, never a single issue with them (and they are rated at 4.8 volts by Futaba). I have 3 helis and two pattern planes also running the unregulated 2S LiFe packs. No issues.

I have several friends flying JR that are using 2S LiFe unregulated with the DS390HV in the fuse and the DS398HV in the wings. Seems to be a solid setup.
