    No. A capacitor just stores energy for when the servo draws to much causing the receiver to loose power thus causing a brown out. By adding a capacitor you have a little buffer zone to keep the receiver powered. With a BEC everything gets full power as long as the power supply is large enough to handle the load making the capacitor pointless. Its still possible to cause a brown out with a BEC but you have bigger issues if the battery powering it gets below 4.8 volts.
