I do not understand.
The specifications of the Tribunus 120 are the following:

Max Continuous BEC Output: 10 Amps @ 8.3 V
Peak BEC Output: 20 Amps/1s

How can it handle a continuos output of 10Amps if you say, the standard servo wire are rated 3A continuos?

Any idea?

Those are the plug specifications and we have to live with those limitations, fitting thicker wires will not change the plug specs.

We all use these and it works as luckily for us there are never that amount of continuous current flowing with servos, unless a servo jamms or shorts out.

An example is the Kosmik range of controllers which have the same two BEC lines and their BEC are rated for 20A continuous and 30A burst, but never a burnt plug or melted wire unless something goes wrong. Even dedicated BEC's run the same two wire system. If you really want peace of mind fit a power bus solution and run it off two battery packs.

Yes, I understand but the wires are much longer than the plugs and if I am not mistaking the resistance of a wire and therefore the voltage drop, depend on the length and on the thickness (indirectly).

Therefore in my poor opinion a thicker wire would not have hurt.
