Diodes to drop 3-cell LiPo Voltage.
Here is how I dropped the voltage of my LiPo to a safe voltage for use in my JR X9303 transmitter. I used two diodes in series. I have 3 sets of these in parallel for redundancy, in case one of more of the diodes fail. The triple redundancy is a bit over kill.

Nice though on the Overkill but at low current if a diode goes bad it shorts.
If it one diode shorts that would still raise the voltage and the other diodes would not be doing anything.
Now at high current 10 Amps or more your circuit is going to work like you want it .
