Maximum current for 3DR power module

Hello,

I am building a hex with 14" props for lifting a mid sized camera. I am pretty set on running a 4S setup, as I can share batteries with my other quad.

I calculate in hover I should be drawing around 30 amps. That is not a problem, but RC-calc is showing a max current of over 120 amps at full throttle. Granted, full throttle climbouts are a rare thing and I don't know that it will actually pull this, but that has me concerned a bit.

The 3DR module only lists its 'maximum  sensing current'. For APM it is 90 amps and Pixhawk it is 60 amps.

Can the module pass my max current without danger? Blowing the shunt and having no power would be a bummer.

Any insight is greatly appreciated!
