It shows flight loggin of an entire flight with a 2s LiFE pack unregulated. Peak loading during launch is about 3.5 Amps (but he takes 10 samples a second, so there could be some missing data). However, I think it means that a conservative estimate of max 5 Amps is not unrealistic.

Another thing is the stop / start current of digitals, but one would have to be very agressive on the sticks to have all servo's peaking at the same time (is my opinion anyway).
Thanks! That is helpful.
