Futaba or almost any major company wont recommend not because it wont work it is to do with liability.i have a 2600 lipo from rc acessory for my futaba 7c 2.4.given how I fly I only have to charge it every couple moths.its perfectly safe and reliable.beats stupid nicadsand for years used nimh batteries as good as those are I love the lipo battery betterif you forget to turn it off and it goes down to a very lo volage unfortnuately you will lose a cell and not be able to charge.i feel lipos are perfectly safe .you have them in your cell phones right? I think you either like them or you dont and theres nimh and life batteries if you more comfortable.

9C user. I've had a lipo in my radio for 3 years flying year round. Never an issue and don't have to recharge after every flying session like I did with NiCAD's. Keep in mind that Futaba sells some expensive battery packs for replacement in their radios. I'm sure this helps in their decision not to show any support. I also charge the battery out of the radio. Taking it out for a charge is a non-event because it is done so seldom.

I have been using 3s lipo in my 9c for 5 years. no problems. always charge around 11 volts and out of the transmitter.
