I like Redundancy. Run through three bad packs (dropping cells) like I have in the past two months and watch your planes get beat up coming in.
Then you can see why the redundant and isolated power sources.
Spektrum Receivers (and others have their limits too), like to reboot in air if you get a brownout on voltage. Just dumped the 57 SC in again yesterday off an old pack that couldn't cut the heat. Rebooted the Receiver and ESC. Going to add a separate 2S 1550 flight pak (borrowed from the 71) and 10A BEC to run the Rcvr and Servos now at 6v.
Same 6S 5000 pack with a weak cell got me twice in the 71 Slick, but at least in the Slick, I had a (Controlled) hard landing because the Receiver and Servos were isolated.
