You can buy pre made panels that already step down the voltage to 1.5, but almost everyone I know does not use them because even the factory pre -made panels burn up glo-plugs like crazy.
Shops like Hobby People sell these pre-made panels, and you cut cut them into your starter box.
Also if you are thinking using your chassis as a ground, you may cause a bad glitch in your radio/receiver.
But I quess you never know until you try
