The ESC works fine, though I never exceeded 35A on a 6S setup.
The SBEC has been disappointing. When it works, it never puts out more than 4.7V, sagging sometimes to 4.5V, even though it powers an airplane with 4 standard servos. Occasionally, it would not raise above 4.4V, unless
the battery is disconnected and reconnected. Luckily, I have telemetry. After a few of these incidents, I decided to pull the middle pin out and run the Rx/Servos on a separate LiFe battery. Well, for the cost I guess I cannot complain too loud.
