Default Proper battery.wiring and switch setup questions

am using 1-Jr LS4001 for throttle and 4 -Hitec 625MG's for control surfaces 2/ailerons,1 elevator,1 rudder in a .45 size 3D plane.
1.) was planning on using a 5 cell Nimh pack.
do I or should I need a voltage regulator?
what mah would be recommended? is a 2700mah pack enough?

2.) need to run extensions from the elevator and rudder servos
should I be using heavy gauge extensions? or are the standard ok.
any advantage/disadvantage of one over the other?
along the same lines should I be using a heavy gauge switch? Was planning on using the JR heavy duty switch with the built in charge jack
