You guys are trying to compare F5D and big power planes to these 50 amp planes. Its not the same thing. For starters I wouldn't run a 60 amp controller on a 50 amp setup. I would recomend 80 amp minimum. I know your trying to keep the cost down but to me it sounds like at the expense of safety. I run dimension engineering becs in all my fast planes, 30% planes and helis for years now and never one failure. I had a 10s plane loose its battery and there was still enough voltage in the pack to power the servos. These planes are a little more power than park flyers and controller becs should be fine. I have never had a controller bec fail in flight but adding the castle bec or whatever one you want should be more than enough for safety reasons. The failure rate on becs is no more than a receiver battery that someone forgot to charge.
