I won't to use a HK lipo battery to power my ignition. But I'm not sure of a HK regulator to use. Can anyone recommand one?

This one will do the job very well. Just use a 2 cell Lipo, 3cell and above is overkill (the overvoltage will only be transferred in heat)a 1300mah gives me sufficient for a weekend heavy flying.

I'm using one of these on my reciver in a Waco with a G 38 magnito engine.

Would it work with the regulator?
dose the C rating matter?

If you've already got that battery then you could use it but I wouldn't buy one specifically for the task.

In fact, I'd opt for a LiFePO4 pack because when (not if -- but *when*) you accidentally leave your ignition switch on and flatten the battery, the LiFe pack is far less likely to be ruined in the process.

Will work perfect.

The C-rating only matters to on how long you want it to be working before you recharge it. And like said a 1300mah will give you ample for a weeknd flying without being scared that you run out of ignition. A 2100mAh will therefore be more than sufficient.

I only change my capacity of my ignition batteries if I need more balance weight, in that case it's not all dead weight and it's actually more usable than lead
