If I elect not to use a BEC and run a 2S Lipo straight to the receiver do I need an on/off switch or do I plug and unplug the battery directly to the RX as an on/off?

I made a harness from a deans plug and 2 servo leads for my 2s setups. I just plug the lipo into the deans to power up my 7200s.

You can run a switch too. I just run mine without one for least amount of failure points.

That is totally up to you! Some run a switch in a place where they don't have to remove the canopy.

So you use two servo leads just for redundancy? And plug them in any open slots in the ar7200bx

Which of the three wires do you solder to the deans? Signal wire too?

I don't use the signal leads, just the power and ground. I use 2 leads so there is plenty of wire to distribute the power since the servo lead wires are pretty thin. Also helps for redundancy in case there is ever a problem from one of the leads. I have them plugged into any open slots on the 7200.
