You're going to be running a separate RX pack?

You can use almost any BEC if that's the case and not worry too much. Although, I use a 2S lipo for my RX packs b/c it's easier for a BEC to step down a few volts rather than double the voltage from a 3S pack. I prefer the CC BEC, the regular ol blue one, if using a separate RX pack. I would be somewhat apprehensive of using one with anything larger than a 3S....but....


I guess with your power hungry setup, a BEC on a separate RX pack isn't a bad idea.
