I use ElyQ regulator on my nitro`s and like it had no trouble with them at all, so question can i use the ELYQ reg on my new trex700e (3g) using a 2 cell lipo 7.4v.

They both work equally well. A BEC eliminates the need to charge and maintain a separate battery so that’s why they are so popular. I have never had a problem or crash on any EP helicopter due to a BEC failure.

On the other hand I have had a couple of crashed on nitro helicopters. One due to a switch failure and the due to the battery pack going bad.

I strapped a 5C 3000mAh sub c NiMH to the front of mine to combat the cg issues. The main batteries are a little more forward that I like, but I got the cg right and the heli flies great. I think I am a little heavy at about 12lbs, but, the heli has more power than I know what to do with...
