Default ubec question / brushed esc

I am building a brushed motor set up and wonder with 6 servos should I use a ubec?
I would with a brush-less esc without any question but I wonder with a bushed esc if it is necessary as well.

Yes you should! Most of um only will do 3-4 servos, Jeff at heads up RC has um (good ones too!) for 12-13$ I made my lipo hook-ups to swap the UBEC from one to another till my new UBEC comes from Jeff then I won't have to swap it around anymore, bub, steve

Unless you're buying a quality filtered switching BEC such as Castle or Dimension, I would do a range test if on 72MHz. The noise levels of some of the cheap ones will cause severe glitching, and not always right next to the trans. I learned my lesson a while back.
