I use a Castle ESC, Hitec Servos, Spektrum or JR receivers (at least one satellite with antenna at 90 deg angles). I use a 50A ESC for this size plane. I use a separate 10A Castle BEC if I have a heavy servo load. I never use a linear BEC. I allow margin. I have never had an equipment failure with these parts in 4 years of flying 10 different planes most weekends all 4 seasons.
I did have one old off-brand battery freeze and quit in 20 degree weather that caused a panic landing. My thought is to spend some extra on parts and never crash, crashes are expensive and discouraging.
