Default Airtronics RDS8000 Receiver and Flyzone Cessna 182 Select

Heres the plane i bought: http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...I=LNVZA9**&P=G

And i had a bad experience with the on board receiver and transmitter so i decided to upgrade it before i even did its initial flight.
I hooked everything up the lipo battery and all the servos and the receiver was not getting any power. Now the 72 Mhz receiver did not need an additional battery for it to operate. Does the RDS8000 Need a receiver batter even though the plane is electric and using a lipo battery as the main source of power? Thanks.

just to make sure, you have the battery hooked up to the speed controller (which also hooks up to the motor and the reciever, and then the servos hooked up to the reciever?

are you sure you have the servos plugged in the right way?

I'm pretty sure I do i can try some other configurations but yea the battery is plugged into the speed controller and the speed controller is hooked to the throttle channel...So I don't know, I might be doing something wrong Ive read through the manual and i cant find anything about lipo power. Only that a diagram shows that I need a 4.8v Rx batter but i didnt think i needed that since i had the main power source as the lipo..

Like the 72 system, just plug the ESC in the throttle channel on the RDS reviever. It doesn't need a seperate battery.
