ICE 100 BEC rating?

Hi everyone!

I'd like to pick your brains about using the ICE 100 in a 6S "500" heli (LAHeli Sniper), and whether the BEC is up to the task. Here's the setup:

LAHeli Sniper V2 (470mm blades)
Cyclic servos: Align DS510
Tail servo: JR 8900G
FBL: BeastX MicroBeast
RX: AR7000

I was previously running a Jazz 80-6-18 (and using its 4A continuous-rated onboard BEC) but a failure of the previous FBL unit seems to have fried the Jazz (along with killing a 9254 and stripping gears in all 3 cyclics )

Anyway, to my question:

Does the ICE 100's onboard BEC have the guts to run that setup? All I could find was "5A peak" rating, but I wonder what the continuous rating is?

Thanks for any advice.

I have not tested it but there was some posts a while back where it was tested under flight conditions and they found that 3 amps is about it before the voltage start dropping.

Spektrum receivers are very sensitive to voltage drop so you should probably use a BEC Pro V2.
