Default Losi 810 Problem with lipo onboard (no cut off...)

I just bought a protek hump pack it's a life 2cell 1700mah

i managed (thank god to fit the losi regulator in the same box..............what a nightmare that is! )

but i then realised hey i don't have any cut off on anything.... i might kill the 40$ worth hump pack on the fly....

anyone know what to do?

I don't have space anywhere to put a cut off thingny i believe (so tight fit)

I don't really think anybody uses a cutoff for lipos on a nitro kit just for receiver batteries. They are such low capacity, plus your servos aren't drawing nearly the current that electric kits are drawing, in regards to the speed controller and electric motors. It is very unlikely that you'll kill a 2-cell receiver battery on a nitro kit. Just keep a voltmeter on hand, like one of these (http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...oltage-Checker) and check your battery every couple of times you bring your kit in for refueling.
