ESC BECs have been known to fail if the current draw of the servos is relatively high (big, high-torque servos and large control surfaces). You're far better off using a separate Nickel metal hydride (NiMH) battery pack to power the servos and receiver.
Rockyabq,

Do you know if the ESC fries or that it wont supply enough power to the servos? If it's just that the servos wont have the umph needed when I'm on the motor hard that's something I'd just deal with at the moment.
