Its just funny to me that people are using a 5 cell Nixx pack to avoid low voltage Rx glitches, and no regulator, but if they think about using a LiFe pack, they immediately want to use a regulator (even though a fresh 5 cell pack is higher voltage initially).

I will say this:
If you have a binding problem with one of the servos in your plane for any reason, the servo likely will not survive with a Life pack, but may with a NiXx pack, solely due to the voltage droop under load that the round cells experience normally.
That in itself is a good thing, but if the RX browns out because of it, then its not.
I'd rather have control of 5 out of 6 servos, then 0 out of 6 servos....
