Default Lipo on Stock Mini T Electronics?

Can anyone tell me if I can run a lipo pack with stock mini t electronics? I have a common sense lipo charger but I dont have one for regular packs.

You need a low voltage cutoff to run a Lipo with the stock Mini-T electronics. If you don't have one you can cause damage to the battery.

I use a 1320 mah 2s lipo in mine and it works great. I just stop running at the first sign of decreased performance and haven't had a problem yet in 2 yrs. running.
