its a 12 volt system should be able to handle the voltage of a 3 cell lipo. at 12.6volts .. to be safe id just charge to 12 volts.

Never understood why people want to place LiPo. It will indeed make the transmitter lighter but also off balance. There is nothing wrong with using eneloop batteries...

If you want to use Lithiom, go for 14500 Li-Ion cells and a 3 cell AA battery holder.
