MMM V3 has a BEC built in. Should power your servo/receiver just fine. Mine does :-)

Good ESC - did you hook it up to your computer yet to poke around with the LiPO cutoff and other stuff?

You shouldn't require a separate regulator for you system to run. I would however use some of those nice features that the Nomadio system has for Telemetry, including the voltage monitor and temp sensor.

what 4S 5500 battery pack are you using?
