The drawback with a separate receiver pack is weight.
That said I use a separate pack on all my larger planes, larger digital servos can draw a lot.
I don't have to worry about Spektrum graying out with a receiver pack.

One extra advantage is when using a receiver pack you also use a switch.
When the switch is off, it's harder to get an unintended motor start.
That's a good thing with the larger motors.
