LiPo receiver packs for your nitro vehicle or LiPo "inside" your Tx? Dumb Q, jus wanna check to be sure...
If for receiver packs, I would not recomend it if your using the 603 series. The 604 and up will most likely be fine. I have used both the 604 and I think the newest is a 614??? with no problems. But, Futaba does not warranty them if you state that you used a LiPo Rx pack...just a heads up.

Inside the Tx is a definite no no.

The R614FF receivers are rated up to 8.4volts.

Dong,
If you have a 4pks, it came with the 614 Rx. As Matt stated, that Rx will support higher voltages, so Lipo or LiFe batteries can be used.
