Default DC 3 power set up ?

I need some advice on a project. I have a Kyosho/Great Planes DC-3. The original came with a single esc to control both motors. The motors are brushed motors. The set up I have in this one is, 2 esc`s, one for each motor. Each esc has its own battery connector. The line to the Rx from both esc`s are spliced into one plug for the Rx.

I am unsure , while flying, if one of the batteries becomes weaker than the other it would result in a yaw problem that could end the plane. My question is, should I worry? And, if I splice the 2 battery leads together and use just one battery source, will it be ok or will I lose power because of the set up?

I don`t want to go to the expense and work to convert to brushless motors right now. Any suggestions or opinions would be appreciated. Please look at the picture to see the set up.
