Dont even bother with the voltage regulator if you dont have to. Buy these

4 times the life cycle of lipo, no danger as with lipo, and they are far more voltage stable. Its all I use and they are amazing.

That's the 130s at only 6v.

I later put a LiPo on it and it was mind-blowing.

[quote="scrogg";p="882102"]A little extra voltage is better than not enough and most 6.0V Rx packs are not up to powering today's servos. Radio systems with high speed rates kick it up another notch. H.R.

Yes it will but you will need a Voltage Regulator with most Radios... I just bought a 7.4V ready rx and Tx off ebay for 50 bucks. Looked good with my beer goggles on anyways.. :D  This radio frees me from using a regulator. One big advantage to the regulator is it increases run time by dropping the voltage to a safe 6.5V.. iThe TX Rx combo I bought is some kind of Spektrum knock off. I'll review it when it gets here.

Scrogg, I'm no hardcore basher or racer for that matter and with that in mind what kind of battery would you recommend for the casual basher that sees about 1 hour of total runtime?

I usually hangout for 2-3 hours with rest periods in between but runtime would be like about an hour total. By that time, my 5cell hump pack is literally running on fumes. I'm looking for something that does not have the chances of catching fire or needs constant maintenance but is simply plug and play, set and forget. lol
