This device from WIKE R/C Products will allow you to safe the weight of an extra ignition battery and provides an integrated engine kill switch.The IBEF is designed to be plugged into the receiver and run the ignition from the receiver batteries or power system. Ignition power can be turned on and off by assigning the channel the IBEF is plugged into to a 2 position switch. A spare receiver channel is needed to use this switch.  A remote mountable led is included to indicate ignition arming status.

The IBEF can work with any battery type from 5 volts to 16 volts. 

The IBEF has a high efficiency switching regulator that provides power the ignition and also some very good filters that prevent noise and interference from the ignition system from getting back into the receiver. To prove how good the filters work do a range test on your airplane with the engine running at different RPMs with an ignition battery first then do a range test with the IBEF instead and note that you will typically see no difference in range. This will prove the safety of the system.
