That isn't a very good idea since anything higher than about 6v will fry the circuits in the receiver and/or servos.

But yes it could be done if you had a Futaba 'j' plug. Then you would put the wires in the right spots.

The higher the mAH, the longer they run. It's the voltage that will kill your receiver. 5 cell hump pack is what you need.

The mAh is the capacity of the battery and has nothing to do with voltage and doesn't have anything to do with cell count either. You need a five cell hump pack of any mAh.

Right! Voltage is the number of cells times the voltage in one cell. Five 1.2 volt cells equals 6 volts. The mAh is the capacity (of a charge) a 6 volt pack can hold, and all the cells need to have the same mAh value to flow properly.

Only one thing: A receiver pack cell size (A) and a regular stick pack (sub C) use different cells.
