OK.... Some very interesting, very good, info...

Test mule is my 3D plane, 4 cheap 9g servos, Nippy Black 2510/114, 2200mah 3 cell lipo with a charge to 12.6volts, brushless ESC with the red wire pulled.... What I did was high-temp epoxy one regulator to an approximately 1"x1"x.050" piece of aluminum, wire it into the battery side of the esc, and power the Rx through and amp meter.... I put a little tape on the hinges to simulate drag on the servos, and with no airflow, went crazy with the controls. I could never get the amp meter to read over 1.5 amps unless I REALLY yanked on the controls and these were only short bursts. The regulator/heat sink never got too hot to touch and keep in mind that the cut off temp is 250deg. F....

I'm pretty happy so far....
