That applies only if you are using 6s lipo total; if you are using 4-5s, then it's fine.

If you are using 6 lipo however, then just wire the bec to one of the batteries to get power, not both ( like the larger diagram shows ).

If your rx is capable of more than 6v input however ( hv model ), then you can just do like Harold ( paralyzed ) said and connect the external BEC directly to the rx, set for 7.2v, then remove the small red wire from the escs rx cable to disable the escs built-in bec circuit:

the external bec will power the rx & servo in this case, the esc just sends the signal to control left & right + throttle.
