That doesn't sound right to me.

Wouldn't you risk "charging" the 1.5v cell with the 6v ESC supply? The 1.5v cell would be in parallel with the ESC supply, not in series.

Obviously, you're going beyond JR's recommended voltage, and probably the recommended receiver voltage too.

If you want to experiment with 7.2v RX supplys, I would have thought a 6-cell pack made of 1/3AAA's would be the best bet - and removing the ESC red wire from the plug.
