Default Running a lipo as a servo pack

I would like to use a 2s lipo as an servo pack in my nitro vehicle. I don't have high voltage servos. I need some info on using a bec along with a low voltage cut off similar to a Novak Smart Stop....any suggestions?

You can run a 2S lipo in your nitro car, either if you have or don't have high voltage servos. With the HV servos its just a straight connection. However with the 6v servos you will have to use a regulator. Also make sure that your RX pack can handle atleaste 8.40v

The connections with the regulator and non-hv servos would be like:
[2S LIPO] -> ON/OF SWITCH -> Regulator -> rx pack -> servos

The connection with the HV servos would be like:
[2S LIPO] -> ON/OF SWITCH -> rx pack -> servos

You can run 2s LiFe pack and not worry about any voltage issues. Click on link and also try looking on ebay.
