Personally, I'm going with the Castle CC BEC Pro... it's overkill for this application, but I've got one in one of my 3D birds, and have been totally happy with it... so I thought it would be a good choice.

My build continues to progress along... my goal is to maiden this weekend if the weather holds out. I need a new set of retracts, but am willing to fly the maiden with the gear down -- then swap out the retracts later if they don't arrive in time.

STACKER -- I hope you don't mind, but I borrowed your paint scheme for the underside of the plane. After watching the video of yours, I thought the contrast was great... and had to copy it. I tried painting the belly pan on my last one bright yellow... it let me know top from bottom, but it was still difficult to sense orientation... hence the build of Habu #3.
