Hmm, silly question here, but what would happen if you were to put something like this between the ESC and the motor? Obviously that would prevent the motor from starting, but could you still check the other things, like the servos?

Or would doing this just give the ESC a migraine?

I wish Tunigy Plush's had a similar feature for the very reason you are showing.
Agreed. All ESCs should do this. It's trivial to program.
