Default Lipo receiver pack--do you use a regulator???

Hey guys I just picked up a losi 3.0 and ordered a protek lipo pack, I have one High voltage servo, and the other is ko propo. Are you guys running a regulator or just let it bump? lol. I have been looking at the reedy 6v/5a. Where do you install it? hook the regulator to the battery and then to my JR switch then run the switch to the reciever? I still want to be able to charge the lipo pack off the switch charging lead. thanks

I run Lipo RX Batt,
Been told it will fry my big old school amb transponder and according to sanwas specs the receiver wont take it but have been running no probs for months now

I am using HV servos but apparently many non HV work fine.. many people seem to use normal Futaba ones without any issues

Default reg

I think the servos will last longer by not putting 8 volts to them. You should put the regulater after the switch. If not it will drain your battery when not in use.

Which KO servo is it. I have ran KO RSX servos for the last 4 years on unregulated lipo without issue.
