spektrum can easily handle a lipo receiver pack so you will be fine

Has anyone run the older AMB rc DP (not the RC4) Transponder with a 7.4V lipo and no regulator.

They say 8volt max without a resistor mod, but 8.4v is close.

You not gonna have problem with the AMB.I been using lipo with no reg for years never had any issues ! By the time when the power get to the amb through the wires and receiver,(Resistance) i am sure the voltage less than 8V...

Randy I ran unregulated look all last year. You will enjoy the added torque and speed! I went to a regulator after I burnt up a throttle servo but I think that was more my fault epa not set right.

I've been running 7950/7940 combo on unregulated LiPo in my buggy and truggy for about a year and wouldnt have it any other way. Awesome servos when you feed them.
