Default RE: Harris smoke pump powering?

Just wondering.

Would I be right in thinking that I COULD do this:

add a futaba Y connector, cut the red wire from the connector that comes from the RX.... Then I could add a spare battery to the other free leg of the Y?

In which case I could use a small 2S lipo I have, and it is separated from teh A123's that are powering the servos.

I only ask as there was a very notable slowing of the digital servos when I bench tested with the pump running, not sure I want to risk it!

Like in this photo....

EDIT: just realised I drew the +ve and -ve the wrong way round!! pay more attention to the colors than location!! hahha oops!
