That pack will work fine. You can plug it into any spare channel, including the bind port.

Since my review on the Habu 32, I have switched to using this [link=http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXYAS7&P=ML]1100mAh[/link] Hobbico LiFeSource LiFe 6.6V (10C) receiver pack. I plug both black connectors directly into the receiver for redundancy. No switch is used. The pack weighs about 3.3oz and I cut off the Deans Ultra cable.

You shut it off the same way you disconnect the DF power...pull the plugs.

When using a 2s LiPo pack, you'll need a regulator...hence the advantage of LiFe (aka A123) cells. With LiFe cells and no On/Off switch, you eliminate several common failure areas in R/C planes. It also helps to keep the Spektrum receiver resetting due to current spikes on the line.

You can unplug it or get a switch, unplugging it will put stress on the connector after time. Back in the glow only days, all radios came with a switch for the NiCd battery, you can still get them. 7.4v will usually be too much for standard servos, so I've used a MPI voltage regulator, this is the one I've used [link=http://www.tamjets.com/original/product_info.php?manufacturers_id=22&products_id=3 36]MPI Voltage regulator[/link] and they also make this one with a switch [link=http://www.tamjets.com/original/product_info.php?manufacturers_id=22&products_id=3 37]MPI w/ switch[/link]
