Question for Hobbywing Seaking 30A

I am changing motors, ESC, RC in my stock bait boat with Deeper wifi sonar.
Now I have the Hobbywing ESC which should have a BEC for the receiver.
But I can't see any extra wires ? Where do I get the 6v from ?

If the ESC has an internal BEC to derive its control voltage from the main battery, it will also appear on the plug that you use to connect to the radio. As long as electricity only has to travel one way along the wire at any one time, it doesn't care which way that is. An ESC with a built in BEC will supply the receiver, one without will get its control supply via the radio from whatever the supply is. Discrete radio battery, other ESC, stand-alone BEC unit, whatever.
Anything requiring 6 volts can get it from the radio, just plug it into a spare channel, or create a spare channel for power using a Y lead.
