This is a very simple modification for your ESC wiring to reduce the Spark and Arc for a longer ESC life. I used a 4 ohm, 1 watt resister and a micro switch for activation. Watch the attached video and it explains the modification... Mudman1959

I also ran into spark issues with my 10s setup... big sparky.

I ended up going with a similar method, but a little less complex.
I plug both of my 5s batteries to this harness.  With the red cord disconnected I connect to my ESC, and when ready, I plug the red wires together to go "live."

Fuse works great and never a spark.  Thanks to Greg at AH for helping me put this harness together.
