I bought a 5 cell 1700mAh battery from Radical R/C and I am wondering if I need to get some kind of voltage regulator to regulate it down to 4.8v? Or does it not matter if it is 6v or 4.8v? Thanks for the help.

Remember when flying inverted that down is up and up is EXPENSIVE!

your servos and receiver would be fine but i don't think your gyro would handle it. it says in the manual that the 401 operates from 4 to 6 volts. a fully charged 5 cell pack will be around 7 volts. that might hurt the gyro

I would agree with dstuber. I'm running the ATX radios and my experience says you will need a regulator. The gyro is spec'ed for 6.0 volts, it's the servo that doesn't like the hot battery fresh off the charger.

Radio South and Maxx Products have the regulators.
