dual voltage - 12v dc motors and 6 volt servo..Please help

I am attempting to control 6 volt servos and 12 volt dc motors with a
hitech 6 channel transmitter modified for ground with a hitech
receiver. How can I control the motors with 12 volts and the servos
with 6 volts with one transmitter? The speed controller does not have a
BEC. Please try to keep it simple. Thanks!!

Key words here are "voltage regulator". I am sure you can find on of those
car lighter to multiple voltage regulators. Either find a used one or a
cheap one that gives you 6 volts and remove the electronics from the
cigarette lighter shaped casing. My local surplus electronics store has tons
of them for under 10$.

The other option is to make yourself one with a 7812 regulator chip.
Radioshack(the Source) used to have them on the rack and they had the
schematic right on the back page showing a typical setup.

Just throwing out another option. You could use a battery pack to
power the electronics. I paid less then $20 for a good NIMH pack for a
nitro truck.

Pros: Plug and play, no soldering or fancy wiring. Can use still
electronics when primary battery fails.
Cons: Added weight. Another battery to charge. Space considerations
possibly.
