Easy...

run straight 2s lipo to all the electronics (except if you have an ATG gov) ...use a spektrum drop down reg for the tail servo and throttle servo(unless you use an 8v compat Servo)

that's it...

YES...

I am actually running some ino labs 760's right now on 8volts straight...

they are in a logo 500 sized machine (flybarless) and flying very well...seem to be holding up to 8volts just fine

Another option is straight A123 packs. Same advantage as straight lipo but at a little lower voltage, 6.6V. I've been running this setup with some Hitec's, works great as long as you don't run the pack down. A123 (LiFe) dump real hard when they hit their capacity. I'm putting A123's on my T700 also, I think I'm going switchless also, just a straight Deans plug.

running your servos at higher voltage makes a big difference in speed and torque. Just got to make sure that the servos can take it.

ATG

The trick with the ATG is to regulate the power going into that as well...I used to run 8volts on my Synergy and had the ATG on that one...I just regulated the power to that and all was well..theycannot handle 8 volts like all the other electronics

trex 600?

it's simple...get a decent flybarless head like the Outrage or RJX or even the mikado conversion...get a vbar or a Gyrobot for stabilization and that's alll you need ..

Setup is simple and fast...

flybarless is the only way I fly these days
