That power distribution board should be fine ... 80 amps all up is a lot of current and equates to about 900 watts on 3 cells. It would take some extreme flying to put that sort of load on the distribution board (especially for any length of time). Personally I prefer distribution boards without the bullet connectors, and solder your wires straight to the board. just makes for one less fail point (I have not found bullet connectors to be super reliable). www.goodluckbuy.com

. have high current version of the distribution boards without bullet connectors. Alternatively you can just clump all the wires together, solder and heatshrink and not bother with a distribution board at all.
