you will need one of these Anti Spark devices with 10 cells, or when you hook up the batteries its going to sound like a shot gun going off
there is some more info on the CC ESC and what value resistor to use, I will try to find that info, Take care, Chellie
OK, It Looks like you will need to use a 1 to 2 OHM resistor for the Anti Spark Device,With 10 Cells, Larry is one of our Guru here on Wattflyers
Look out for that tree!!!

I dont think the momentary switch idea will work. The caps will discharge too soon. Plus I think your right - the arc could easily weld the switch in the ON position.
If you do the series resistor trick, Castle recommends only useing a 1 or 2 ohm resistor - nothing larger.
They actually prefer you leave it alone and use nothing, but a small resistor is ok.
Thats from the horses mouth
