I have 2 5955tg servos running on SV3s. Previous version of the same servo.
It has never caused a brown out, I think thats what you are wondering about.

But, the servos are not at max performance obviously since they are not getting 6 volts. I have a castle 10a bec that will go in mine, just been working on other things.

For the wiring, just buy or make a y harness to connect one battery to both esc's.

http://www.hobbytown.com/Shop/GPMM3141- ... c-Adapter/ This is what I use for 1x battery -> 2x SV3. Also very easy to hold onto when unplugging the battery! I haven't done the external BEC yet but probably will get a similar adapter to tap off.

The receiver box was cut out of the electronics tray of a Monster GT.
