Default Multiple esc's on one receiver

Hello I am trying to run 6 esc's off of one receiver (dx6e) and i keep burning the esc's up. They are cheap Chinese esc's off ebay 6-8$ a piece, and I am using a 2s Lipo for the motors with a ubec for the receiver. Can someone tell me why I might be burning up the esc's?

I'm assuming these esc's have built in bec's. If so, you need to disable the internal bec by removing the red/positive wire from each servo lead from the esc's.
Also, do you have any idea of how many amps the motors are drawing in your setup?

Ok thanks. Looking at the specs I believe they do have built in bec's. I will try removing the red. I'm not sure how many amps they would be drawing but I doubt a whole lot. Its for an excavator that I removed the original electronics from to use my spektrum radio with. The esc's are the cheapest brushed ones you can find on ebay.
