Excellent read guys, good job with the research and testing!

Just to confirm, I am OK with the setup below, using an RX pack and AR7200BX?

Savox 2271 & 2272 into the AR7200BX. 2S LiPo 1800mAh 65C directly into the AR7200BX through two open ports.

It sounds like using the RX pack is safe, I could add a DC-UP there if necessary. I guess my concern is with the power bus through the AR7200BX, is it adequate to support the servos, or should I add something like the Skookum power bus?

Good to go. The issue isn't passing the current through the wires, the issue is that the regulator can't handle the amp spikes, the DC-UP fixes that.

In your case, you are using a real battery, so no regulator or DC-UP is required.

Has anyone tested with a Jeti Mezon 130?

I had a similar problem with Savox 2274 at 350oz torque. At fast inputs it would studder as they were drawing too much. I put a multimeter through a tm1000 on my setup just to check and the servos would drop to 4.8-5.0v. To fix it I switched to the SG Reactor HVX which regulates a 3s down and with it I have not had an issue. The 3s really leaves a lot of possible backup power to your servos plus 25amps. It is a little expensive though:
