You need a voltage regulator w/ a voltage cut-off. I think Novak makes one.

Does the receiver for the Spektrum DX3R need a regulator for a LiPo pack?

I just purchase some LiFe for my NT1 and they are great , you donīt need a regulator because they are 6.6V
The stock battery tray didn't work well . so I made my own custom try from piece of aluminum
