Was not aware of the Mustang setup.

This is from the Apollo 25A spec:
"Handles 5-8 cells with five micro servos.
Handles up to 10 cells (3 LiPo) w/ three micro servos.
Handles up to 12 cells (6 LiPo) w/two micro servos (25V max input).
Supports up to 4 micro servos & Gyro on 3S LiPo."

And this is from an email I got back from tech support after explaining my 5 servo, 2 motor setup to them:
"We would not recommend the usage of the subject item in the manner stated.
You would have to disconnect the BEC on both ESCs and run a 4.8V battery.
The servos would overload the BEC."

With those two pieces of info, I'm not going to test the BEC unless my model won't lift off the ground with the extra battery.

I did save weight by exchanging the motors.
