I also have the full house set up + (2) gyros. I am using a 40amp ESC w/internal 4a SBEC from Hobbyking, found here. $17 w/buddy code. Never had a problem. I like the flaps a lot although my flying space does not exactly require them. Others have shown video here that shows a dramatic difference in tight spots. Good luck!
