Looks OK but what is the "Y" harness for?

ailerons and camera platform i know they wont be very effective but i plane to add them and take most of the v out of the wing but its really because they are on sale right now and its a good price

so the 5th servo would be for camera pan. cool.

I leave the stock "V" to the wing with my SS equipped with ailerons. The trick to learn rudder control on a USA mode 2 transmitter is to fly with just the left stick as a 2 Chanel. With proper trim a SS Will climb with increase in power and descend with decrease in power. Impress you flying buddies by doing figure 8's and such with your right hand in your pocket

Kafie, don't forget to grab an external BEC, as the integrated linear BEC of the HURC 18A ESC will not be up to the task to power all them servos.

I would also recommend a 400- or 450-size motor over the 370. Something with a low enough kV to swing a 10" prop. Slow Sticks like big props.

I'm not disagreeing but I'd like to point out the lifting ability of the SS with very moderate power, I flew my 30 oz SS with camera on a 2410-09Y motor. It's an older design that I can't recommend but it's only 130W. I do believe I used a GWS 1047 prop. I can't find all the specs on the Power Up 370 but I agree with the bigger props. You need more thrust than speed.

I agree with Phoam about the 400-size motor, especially with the added weight you plan to carry, and a 10 x 4.7 prop. Get a few extra props. A spare motor would be a good idea also if your supply line is long.

You don't need an external BEC. Counting servos is not a valid argument. You will never have all six servos active simultaneously.

I'd change one thing. Get rid of that GWS prop. An APC slow fly prop will get you significantly more efficiency. At higher RPM the GWS props get excessive blade flutter, giving you wasted amps from increased drag with no increase in thrust. A study by a prominent university singled out GWS props as notably inefficient.

He intends to use only five servos, but anytime you're making a cordinated turn using rudder + elevator + ailerons, power is being supplied to four servos, and that's enough to overload a linear BEC. It's been said that those 9-gram servos are kinda power-hungry too. Personally, I wouldn't run more than three servos off of a linear BEC, no matter if they are used simultaneously or not. I like to elimate the likelihood of a brownout.
