That depends on the type of cells, if NiZn, yes, it can handle 3 cell as it is 1.6V x 3 (max 1.9V x 3). As for LiFePo, LiPo, Li-Ion, NO, it must be used with a voltage regulator or better known as BEC.
Jye I use 4 x AA in a caddy. Or you can get a Rx pack. Then plug this into the Batt Port. Or into any servo port. Now the wiring is easy. 3 pins, the centre is Pos 4.5V to 6.5V and the outer most pin is -Neg. The inner most pin is Signal and is left out when, you are hooking up a battery.
Type your review here. Try to include as much data as possible. Just received the (2) HK-TR6A V2 & (1)HK-GT2R receivers that I ordered less than 2 wks. ago. All of the receivers bond with my Turnigy 9X V2 transmitter instantly and seem to work properly. Still need to do range checks but based on the other reviews that I read, I do not expect any problems. These receivers are so much smaller & lighter that the Turnigy 9 ch. V2 reciever. Only misses that I see is that the TR6A receivers do not have the notchs in the case for the Futaba type connectors and do not show the orintation (s -) for the connectors. The neg. (black) lead is oriented to side of the case (away from the label). These are probably the cheapest 2.4GHz receivers on the market. Will by more the next time that they are in stock.
I bought 3 of these and am very happy with all of them. They seem rock solid-glitch free.I use these with the Turnigy 9x radio and the V2 firmware and Turnigy module.They bind instantly with transmitter.They are so much lighter than the Turnigy 8 channel receivers.Turnigy 9x receivers work great as well but they are much to heavy for park flyers and smaller RC planes and Heli.Here is some advice for these new receivers.Take apart the case and add some hot glue to the antenna where it connects to the PCB board.I also like to add a little glue to the aerial unit by stripping off the heat shrink tubeadd a little glue to the inside of the brass tube and then center the wire while the hot glue sets up.I than will use some 4mm Turnigy heat shrink tube over the aerial and now it wont pull apart as easy in a crash and looks a little better with the Turnigy labeled shrink tube.I also color code for either planes or helis with different color tubing.I also advise that if you are using several of these that you bind each one individually with your transmitter set on the appropriate model in your model memory.Example you want to use this with model number 4 (HK 450 heli) on your transmitter.Before binding set your transmitter to model 4 than bind it.For best results only use this with model 4.If you want to use in a different model re-bind it.I have found they work slightly more precisely when you do this.Overall these are best combo of value and quality in the world today.Buy ten to

Very simple to bind with Turnigy 9X V2. You only have to know, the bind cord goes into the Bat.port of the receiver for binding.
Heard a rumor that these worked with the Turnigy 9X so I ordered a handfull. They do indeed work with the 9X and are smaller and lighter than the stock receiver. Not a single problem any of the units thus far.

Just for your information - I've range tested this receiver as well as the turnigy 9x receiver at a direct line of site with the plane on the ground an the antenna oriented straight up. All receivers were rock solid at 1.2 miles.
Unfortunately I can't get any farther away without going behind a hill so I don't know how far they will really go. 1.2 miles is plenty far enough!
