Ok, I've been out of the hobby for a few years and am getting back in. I fly a Raptor 50 and am thinking of upgrading to. Trex 700.
I'm looking at the "equipment. needed" portion of their manual that the post online and see that I needs this regulator. I've never used any type of regulator, is this necessary, what purpose does it serve?

Thanks for any input you can give.

You don't 100% need a regulator, it depends on what servos and gyro your going to be using.

I don't have all the info, others could help better. The RX battery is 7.4 v and most servos work best on 6V, except high voltage servos (HV) which work on 7.4. A regulator will take the 7.4v from the RX battery and convert in 6v.

Not necessarily. The biggest difference is what servos you are running and how many volts they can handle. If you want to stay with a nimh battery, they make them in 6V otherwise you could go to a lipo battery. It all depends on what servos.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

Most newer digital servos pull more mah from the batteries than would be safe for using a 4.8v pack, it can be done if your not flying hard. But the mah needs to be high, I would say nothing below 2500, I used 6v nimh 4000 packs on a Raptor 60 with all digitals and never had a problem but I wasnt doing 3d. It all depends on the servo's draw and the type of flying you will be doing. I have actually outfitted all 3 of my heli's with them because I like the idea of not needing the remote glow ignighter, I do think the mah of the batteries they come with are a little small, might eventually get 2500 or 3000, they are 1900.
