If your not going to go higher than 6S lipo then the 80 would be my choice since its BEC is enough to run the system.

The other two will require an external BEC so the only deciding factor between those two is if you want the ability to run higher cell count.

Im using the 80 because Im not going higher than 6S.

What widowmaker is true however the 55-10-32 is the same price and you will be able to use it on a larger 10S heli in the future. It may be worth consideration however it will require an external BEC as well. It is also a good idea to have an external unit.

Im a big fan of CC Phoenix HV but Jazz is getting a good rap. I still like the bec separate from my esc. if you cook the esc you still have control. if the bec is built in everything dies.
Mind you I have not had the opportunity (misfortune) to test this control thing on helis but I sure have on my airplanes and it is nice to be able to land and just replace and esc. when the bec is built in it just crashes. My 600e's have separate bec and hv85 esc but I put the stock align esc/bec back in my 500 TEMP.

CRASH! GLUE! REPEAT!

A comment on the stepdown reg, I've been running a 9257 on a 40/6/18 and thought the bec output was 5.5v @ 2a. I had a 401 at first but now use a LGT2100T with the 9257 and its been since the 9257 was avalible however long thats been. Excellent results at 5.5v and no probs or flaws. Things work even better with the fireup weight mod. fwiw

80-6-18 Jazz, built in High quality 4AMP constant BEC with bursts over 6amp capability. Up to 80 amp constant on the esc and bursts over 100 without issue. A good choice for a no limit controller. The BEC output is 5.27 volts.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...
