Many here (perhaps everyone) would recommend a 1S lipo. The weight depends on your plane. I use a 1200mah 1S Lipo, but others use lower mah/lighter batteries. A battery at this voltage can power your receiver directly.

I use a mini JST to servo plug adapter/extension, others just solder a servo adapter to the battery.

Its simpler than it seems!

1s really is the bomb. Even holdouts of 2s are using 1s now.

I used to use little homemade Y cables on my 4 ch Rx to get power in. To heavy so now I solder onto the pins and plan lead direction and length specific to each planes needs. If I am going to run the power cable past the Rx I don't solder on the signal wire. Seems to stop servo whine.

Cool! Thanks! I'll use an adapter or just resolder new leads. I'm going to go 1 cell as well.
