I's there an advantage of using a 6V system with a regulator over a direct 4.8V. I,m currently building a scale huey (gasser) and using 5 digital servos and scale lighting

Yup, if you loose a cell then your reciever will still get a safe voltage. With a 5 cell pack I wouldn't even worry about a regulator except for the tail servo.

lipos or nimh?
i use a 7.4 volt 2s lipo for servos. the regulater only allowa 6v to get to servos. so you get a constant 6v. using 4.8 volts(fully charged is 5.2v) u drain below full gharge very quickly and constanly droping. cuasing your sevos to react below there specs. make sense?

Im in the same boat as using lipos for the advantage
of longer flight times.
