I've been juggling with the idea of using a li-po receiver pack too. The only thing holding me back is that when you overdischarge a li-po pack, it becomes useless as the cells become damaged.

For those using one, how do you manage the fact that the voltage cutoff switch on the regulator will turn all power off. Are you using a throttle return spring ?

Is there a kind of device that would kick the brakes on when the cells reach 6.3volts or something (like an integrated failsafe maybe ?)

I scraped my first li-po pack once in a mini-t because I left my battery connected thinking the on/off switch would do the job. It was a costly experience. I don't want the same thing to happen again in my buggy.

It's the same size as a AAA hump pack. Very small. Can't wait to run it this weekend in my MSR. I'm running it direct to the Spektrum Rx and two Hitec Titanium Series servos. They're all rated for the higher voltage, so NO regulator.

The TG-5955 steering servo is rated at .15sec/333oz on 6.0 volts. On the Lipo it's like .12 sec and over 450oz of torque
