I have a 1500 2S lipo reciever battery on my X-Treme 600 and after five 5 minute flights the battery has dropped to 8v.

Gottit guys - super reliable. Even when I run a separate battery for my receiver and servos (normally lipo 850-1000mAh 3s) on my bigger helis, I still take it through a BEC, and not direct

I finally got the 550X maidened. I need to kick servo 1 down a little in the IKon's programming to fix a very slight drift forward, but it was pretty rock solid. After 8 minutes of hovering around on the lower of my two high speeds, everything was just slightly warm. My highest head speed is 90% of open throttle, so I don't expect heat to be an issue. I have a CC BEC, CC ICE 2 80HV, Quantum 4120 motor, 2 SE-C4413V 2BB Metal Gear High Speed Digital HV Servos from Spring RC on the swash and the BK 7001 in the tail.
