Read this thread please for BEC info on actual tested equipment. The BEC tester.

If you choose to fly it like that it may work but all I can say is cheap and FPV do not go together. It usually ends in tragedy. Why risk a couple hundred dollars on a $10 savings?

Best of luck to you,

EDIT: I use these BEC's for most all my setups. They have been tested by a number of RCG members quite thoroughly and are as nearly "noise free" as you will get in the hobby class.

UBEC-5A-HV $22.00 @ Helidirect
UBEC-8A $15.38 @ Helidirect This one is limited to a maximum input of 3 cells, (12.6v) but seriously rocks with two cells for running your cameras, etc.

Thanks again, i will certenly buy one of these UBEC, you are totally right, i wont try to save few dollars for risking losing all the equipment

I suppose the UBEC goes directly to the Receiver in the battery input and the BEC from the ESC, goes in the OSD

i check the ESC spec and it's 3amp esc 60amps, seem to be fair enough dont you think?
