Default Y-Cable Switch

Help: I want to use a Y-cable to connect an outside the model battery source during a turbine startup. I want to do this so I don't use up a lot of my onboard battery capacity. Once the engine is running, I want to disconnect (switch off) the outside battery (9.9v, 5000mah) and remove it from the Y-connector and let the jet continue to run on the onboard (9.9v, 3,500mah) turbine battery. Trying to not run down the lighter Mah onboard battery just to start the turbine. As a rookie, I am asking is there a specific wire size and type of switch I should use? I know this is a bit elementary for some of you guys, but I am asking for your help and knowledge. Thanks. Chic
