Lipo-voltage is too-high (although I believe I did read where someone had used one).

LiFe 6.6V works best, there are a few-different ones available ;

Turnigy 2S 2100mAh (specific for the T14SG, no-linky but they are in-stock in the US Warehouse))

Hyperion 2S 2100mAh

Hyperion 2S 2080mAh (supposed to be a little-better fit than the 2100mAh model)

Hobbico 2S 1900mAh (Tower Hobbies)

Pro-Tek

Hope that Helps !!

If you install a normal lipo in the 14SG for sure you are going to burn the radio.The robbe futaba special lipo battery for the 14SG has inside i believe a regulator or a diode maybe which drops the voltage to 7,4 volts and this is the normal voltage for the 14SG.

The Ni-Mh supplied with the 14SG appears to be a low self discharge type. I don't see any drop from one week to the next.

For me I recharge the battery after about 6 hours of use. Some are reporting over 8 hours of use between recharges.

The transmitter has been designed for use with LiFe and Futaba do have their own available.

The only advantage I can see as a switch to LiFe is the very fast charging capability.

If you charge a Ni-Mh correctly when new it will give excellent service and very good runtime.

You may wish to consider this battery if you are not getting along with the NiMH pack the 14SG comes with. It has all of the advantages of a LiPo with none of the issues.

I have a 2s lipo in my 14sg, I have zero issues. I ran 2s lipos in my old 8fg for years without any problems.

Using 2s lipo is not an issue.

Fwiw, I use Turnigy 2s 2000mAh Rx packs. They fit perfect, are not expensive, and hold a charge for a long long time. I have 2 of them, and Tx power is never an issue.....ever.
