My personal preference and opinion..... I would never add any kind of additional load to the battery pack that powers the receiver and servos. I can deal with a deadstick engine, but I cannot deal with a dead radio and servos.

the smoke pump should have a dedicated battery.

That would be the perfect option, but given that he is only dealing with a 15cc engine, weight might be an issue.
