I run 1258TG for steering and throttle. Held up for over year and no problems! Amazing servos, hit up speedzoneusa.com for some good prices too.

Just use another 1268. Get the 60 series and not the 50 series, that way you can run a lipo receiver pack direct without any regulator...ie 1268 not 1258

I can't help on the LiPo pack cause I only use LiFe RX packs but for the servos I can tell you that the 1268 are pretty good servos. I've ran two in my buggy and they did well all summer.

I run 1268mg for both steering and throt. But if your gonna run lipos check to make sure your reciever can handle the voltage.

don't know what radio your runnin, but some of the airtronics recievers are not rated for more then 6.0 volts. not sure about the other brands.
