Default RE: Diagram for a retard.

1. No. Most esc's are B.E.C. equipped. bec stands for battery eliminator circuit. This will provide 5v to power the receiver and servos.
2. Switch turns of the bec power and the esc itself.
3. Futaba switch harness will be unnescessary as the esc already has one.
4. Yes you have too many switches.
5. Solder the esc output leads to the motor. Solder opposite connectors on the battery and the input lead on the esc. Plug the servo style lead on the esc into any unused receiver slot. Turn on transmitter. Verify the throttle is off. Plug the battery into the esc. Turn on the switch connected to the esc. Viola!
