It's very easy to build a shorting plug on the negative side of the ESC lead. You just need to make some extra wire length that comes out to the bottom of the canopy or where ever is easiest for you.

All that's involved is take an EC5 or whatever and short the two contacts with a small loop of wire. Then take the negative lead from the ESC, extend it back to where you want the shorting plug, and attach a mating connector for the shorting plug in line.

It's handy for getting the heli ready to go and carry out to the line. Then just connect the shorting plug to power up, and go fly. Likewise, it's safer after the flight to just pull the plug and kill the bird before carrying it back to the pits.

Switches and high current are not really compatible without being overly large and and heavy, so no one really makes one for our application.

Careful about adding additional length to the battery leads. You may need to add an additional capacitor to the line to help with ripple.-Jeff T.

There is this product.

http://www.hkm-models.com/Emcotec%20Switches.html

They have a model rated for 14s 120a continuous/ 240a peak.

Personally I prefer to keep it simple. Wiring as short as possible with the least amount of connections or gadgets.

None of my current helis require such a setup, so I don't have any examples at the moment. I have done with a 10S powered airplane in the past.

Below is a pic of the setup using Anderson Power Poles, but any connector will work.

Other examples:

It's true that you want to keep wiring length to a minimum, but if done right the power plug setup doesn't take much length.

JH, I don't think that's his intention. He is probably like me, and doesn't want to fool with the canopy while the bird is hot, or while out on the flight line.

I like to load my batteries in the pits, install the canopy, and be ready for my next turn at the flightline. Those that share airspace with planks have to be ready to GO

Using a shorting plug arming "switch" allows you to carry the heli out, plug in the switch and go. It's probably not something that most folks care about...but you know we heli guys aren't most folks either

That's basically how my Caliber 90s are setup. One batt up front facing the center, one batt in the rear facing the center. I have it loaded and ready to go. At the line, I power up electronics, then plug in my Series splitter to the ESC from the bottom of the frame.

Wow... did you see how big that switch is next to the 5000mAh pack? You need to download the instruction sheet to see it.
