Peaks might get up pretty high but in reality in a typical heli application you most likely don't draw where near that. One day there will be a better servo connector, or at least a better power connector to the main bus. Well spectrum has their power safe receivers.

Yes I have several flights over an hour. My FPV routinely flies for half an hour but I have a separate BEC for that one.

Someone needs to do a good endurance test to make sure that the internal BEC and connector can really deliver what CC claims.
