So you're not looking for a LiPo but have you considered using a LiFe? It's 6.6V but you don't need to use a regulator like LiPo, and I think they might even be lighter in weight.

I am running VTEC 1600 NiMh cell already for 2 years with the same pack. They do provide enough and stable power and for sure enough driving time.

I believe Orion has now 1900 NiMh packs if capacity is an issue.

Want to use LiFe battery ?

IP 1450Mah LiFe. Thick power cables, light weight, and very low drop voltage when you store the battery ( or dont use the battery ) for long time.

If your running a futaba fasst reciever Life still won't work, Ive tried it and it still over heats the reciever.
