Unfortunatly the 977 only does 1-3 cell lipo...so u could get a Rx lipo and charge it....but u need something better for a 4 cell....as per what battery....depends on the vehicle really....you will also need a regulator to keep the voltage in check.

common sence has a page about general lipo stuff...under the Resources tab.
