He does not have high voltage servos, so what the best way to have him convert over to 2s lipos, and have some redundency.

2S LiPo with a CC BEC Pro to regulate the voltage down
or
LiFe pack unregulated

Either way, multiple leads going into the receiver to power everything. At least 3.

LiFE pack is high voltage....fully charged is 7.2

thats only .2V less than lipo...if you go with LiFE, use the bec also and reg it down to 6V

2s lipo is 8.4 fully charged.

4.2 x 2 = 8.4

I know, to early in the morning for math.

if one can get into the case of the receiver to put some wires to the servo bus, I'm now a fan of getting a better pigtail to the receiver rather than multiple servo plugs or Y-leads...
