Reality check before I buy please

I am new to electrics so my power system knowledge is non existent!

I am building a 50" jim young plans dh88 and want to run my power system plan by the 'experts'.

I am running (2) scorpion 2208-30 brushless motors (only parts I already bought) and plan on using (2) HK / volcano / cheap 20amp speed controls off a 3s 4000 lipo. I understand the best way is to link both ESC to one channel with a Y cable? Will the BEC still work like this? My radio will support mixing 2 throttle channels if i need to go that direction instead.

Scorpion spec sheet shows a max draw of 15amp so the 20esc should be enough. I gather the cheap esc are working for people?

Finish weight is unknown as it is not yet done, i suspect about 35oz though from other builders results. I dont need rocket performance just good run times.

thanks all!
