Cheers for that I went to the store today to see what was what and discovered that there needs to be a switch soldered in between the battery and the regulator otherwise the battery will be terminally drained (oh that was a shocking reference ).
You are correct also that the positive lead from the ESC needs to be removed from the plug and taped or cut and insulated as running two BECs will cause problems...
I will post some more pics and updates in a few hours as SWMBO is working night-shift, thus enabling me to tinker, totter and tailor all I like well into the night...!
