Separate battery for a retract servo? How?

Guru's,

I'm thinking about fitting retracting u/c to my next proposed project.

I keep hearing horror stories about stalled servo's draining all the current from the main batteries, so is there a diode or sumfink so I could use a separate small cell pack just to power the u/c.

Just disabling the BEC won't work as the stalled servo scenario will still kill the radio gear.

Any thoughts before Bri shifts this thread elsewhere?
