UBEC, ESC's BEC, Rx Pack in your Heli?

Hello,
I would just like to start a little thread with folks responding as to how they power their radio gear. I'm mostly interested in the 10-cell/3S LiPo size heli's, but everyone is certainly welcome to respond.

If you would like to respond, please include the following:
1) Type of heli,
2) Flight pack size/type being used,
3) Method of powering radio gear (if using your ESC's BEC please include type of ESC),
4) Servos and gyro being used, and
5) Type of flying that you do with this setup.

Thank you,
John

This will be based on Helicopter use only. Otherwise it would need to be in the Open or Radio forum.
