Does anyone know what this ESC model is? The seller said it is the HobbyWing 100A ESC, but I cannot find this particular ESC in the HobbyWing website. All they have is the platinum series with blue casing but mine is black Is this the older model? It has a giant black heat sink 2.2in by 2.2in in size.

Ahh. I check the back and the letters on the label have faded away, but I can see it said High Voltage 100A Brushless Controller.

It's the Hobbywing 100A.

An older one(year or two?) but that's what it is.

Thanks everyone. So, I guess it does not have a built in BEC.

Unlikely.
Not very many bigger ESCs do.

I don't trust a BEC anyway.
One small failure in a BEC scraps everything on the heli...$1500 flash.

I haven't found any servos or gyros rated for 50V yet.

If it is an LV, they usually have a BEC, the HV versions do not. Either way, get a reliable BEC like a Western Robotics. The BEC built in those ESCs is not very robust.
Easy way to check, use a multimeter and check the red and black wires in the ESC main lead to the rx.

Bob's BEC failed on his Trex 550E sitting on the ground right after an auto. It applied 44.5v to all of his electronics (4 servos and 3GX). Everything needs to be replaced!

This time around, he will be using a seperate LiPo pack to run the electronics.

That's sounds like a CC BEC failure That is why I will never use one. WR is pretty bulletproof and I use them exclusively on birds 600mm and under. Over that I like a separate lipo for the potential damage a 700+ Heli can do.
