I would not do it on a 600. I have read several threads where brown outs have occured using the ice 100's internal bec on a 600. I have an Ice 100 on 8s and I am using a sepreate RX pack. Besides... if you puff a pack or smoke your esc in flight having a seperate RX pack you can still land safely... if you can auto that is...

Spektrum receivers are very sensitive to low voltage (I sure wish Spektrum would build better receivers). The good news is that the ICE has the ability to adjust the BEC voltage. If you set it to 6v (I like 6.2v or higher) you won’t have any problems. I have many flights with both 6s ans 8s with no problems.

Found this for you....

Castle sent us their flagship Phoenix ICE 100 to review and see how it holds up.

First, some features and specs on this unit:
Internal 5-amp (peak) Switching BEC: The voltage output is adjustable via Castle Link software from 5‐7VDC in 0.1VDC increments. Remember, if your tail servo is NOT rated for more than 4.8VDC use a step‐down regulator (in-line diode) if you plan to run the BEC voltage higher than 5.0VDC. If you’re running standard sized servos in a 500mm-plus rotor blade sized model it is recommended that you install a separate BEC.

DO NOT USE THE BEC FROM THIS ESC WITH ALIGN SERVOS!!!

They will draw more than 5Amps and you will loose the heli.
I lost an outrage 550 due to this. I could reproduce even on the ground when stirring the sticks real fast. Use an external BEC.
