Just got a 10CH and 6014HS to put in my 600N. I want to run direct 2s to the rx and a Spektrum dual reg. to throttle and 251.

Almost sure this is ok, but want to be sure. Anyone being running 8v to rx for a while ?

That may be too hot. Why not try a 2S A123 RX pack. The 6014 is rated for 6V nominal. Futaba designs for and recommends using NiCd packs. Since these have a full charge of 1.4V±, that yields a 5 cell pack at 7.0V. Most electronic components are designed for an under and over voltage of 10% for safety. So the max I would feel safe to use on the 6014 is 7.7V. The 8.4V fully charged LiPo is 20% over voltage. The A123 will provide a safer 7.2V when full.

Of course you could go with a Western Robotics step down on the 2S LiPo. This will take off 0.8V and bring the pack into the tolerances of the 6014. The step down is rated at 5A continuous. So it shouldn't cause any problems. Just my 2 pennies.

I fully charged 2s lipo will drop quickly to 7.7v under a 1 amp servo load. I've read on another forum that several pilots are using direct 2s. But it's good to er on the safe side.

I'm also waiting for some feedback about this.
I have an R6008HS and R617FS receivers and want to use directly with 2 cells lipo battery but they are rated only for 6 volts
