Default nomadio/lipo pack

My friend asked me a question that I had no clue about. Maybe u all can help. He just bought a Nomadio radio and is putting a lipo pack on his buggy. His question was since the lipo pack is rated at 9volts and he said will run around 7.3volts, can he run the pack directly or does he need to by a voltage regulator/reducer to not burn up his servos. He said his servos are rated at 6V. Any help would be appreciated.

The Sensor transceiver should handle up to around 16V, but you need to reduce the voltage, else you will burn the servos, as there is no BEC circuit in the Sensor.

The HiTec Titanium Robot Servo should handle 8.somethingV and the Tonegawa should also handle that, most other servos vil be toasted at more than 6V

Most definitely, get a voltage regulator and bring down the volts to the range the manual says your transceiver is to be run on. It would be a bad thing to have to buy a replacement transceiver that runs about $90+!
