Even though I'm running an exterior 10 amp ESC I get hot cutoffs generated from the brick when running 3S....I don't understand this as I'm running an exterior ESC but taking the throttle signal directly from the brick...I would think that the brick ESC/regulators would be taken out of the equation but they haven't...My ESC is rated for 4S so I'm sure that the cutoffs when on 3S are related to the brick...But I'm running a 2500kv motor---I need to drop down to the 2300kv motor for 3S...

Your cutoffs are from the VR over-temping. slap a heasink on it and you'll be fine. The voltage regulator is really working hard to bring 11V down to 4.3V for the servos!
