Default 5 wire servos/ESC

Why 5 wires for some servos and 3 for others? I want to use my PZ P-51 ESC (SR-327LT, PKZ1554) in Cermark Phoenix but the it has 3 wire servos. Can it work? I also want to use a power switch but where does it connect? The PKZ1554 has a 4 pin conn on top, it that for the power switch?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Industry standard servos have three wires. Any other number of wires is a proprietary system, where the components are not standard and therefore not interchangeable with industry standard components.

The best "switch" to shut off all power to the plane is to unplug the battery.
