I have my Gaui Hurricane 425 (500 size) built and setup. the instructions ask to run a seperate Rx pack (i have a 1100mah nicd), but i've been toying with putting a 10A CC BEC and running it off the 6s LiPo. What do you all think would be the best way about doing so? Solder the BEC onto the dean's with my ESC, or run a seperate Rx pack? Please let me know.

I run the CC BEC on my 6s T-Rex 500 without any issues.

I believe it's 10A , 5.4v output. I could be wrong though.

The guide says 5.1v and 5 amps by default on 6s.

Soldering the BEC into the Deans is a good way to go. The only other thing I'd comment on is the CC BEC's servo lead style connection to the receiver. Those servo connectors don't handle much current. If you can, solder in a second lead with connector so the current load can be shared by the two of them.

Excellent suggestion cbflys. I run a HV BEC on my 10S and soldered it to the deans. I was concerned about the receiver starting up at the same time as the ESC but have not had any problems.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Using the stock servo plug won't be an issue as you won't exceed 5 amps.

i'll try giving it a shot with a single servo connection. If it gets a little off, i'll consider soldering on a 2nd connection. Thanks for the input everyone. Hopefully I can get it up and running today.

PS. On a 2nd note... did you all grease up your one-way bearing, or just leave it as is? I spooled up my motor the other day to test it out (it's new) and the gears seem to be making a lot of noise.
