Honey Bee batteries

Just wanted to know if the 4-1 controller on a Esky Honey Bee has a voltage cut off for Lipos? I ask this because they come with a Nihm, but it mentions in the instructions that you can upgrade to a 2 cell lipo. Also the Nihm pack is 8.4 V, will the 4-1 handle a 3 cell Lipo or would I need to run a Voltage reg?

It does not. I suppose yours is an e-sky Honeybee FP 4-in-1. Yes it can handle 3 cells Lipo 11.1v without problem. However, you should consider installing a lipo low voltage warning light/alarm because lipo would be damaged permanently if you over-discharge it (and it is also the case with over-charge).
