JR say's no. Others say a 3s Lipo works fine. I say listen to what the manufacturer has to say.

Find a 3s LiFe (Lithium Iron) battery.
The nominal voltage of the 3s LiFe pack is 9.9V.

Highly recommended Sanyo Eneloop technology NiMh packs. The Eneloops retain their charge a long-long time, as their self-discharge rate is very low. The Hangtimes link has 'em.

A 2000 mah pack goes quite awhile between charges.

I've made homemade packs using Kodak PRECHARGED 2100 mah NiMH cells purchased at the local WalMart for about $10 a 4-pack. Two packs, some solder, and a few minutes of my time, instant long-life, low-discharge-rate TX battery with 2100 mah worth of capacity.

The Precharged cells are based on the Eneloop technology, so their self-discharge rate is low, they'll retain about 85% a full charge after sitting on the shelf for a year.

The transmitter low-voltage alarm remains calibrated, and your wall-wart charger will still fill 'em up when you need to.
