Default Watt Meter Hookup

2 6s batteries in series: is this (the arrow) the correct place to connect a watt meter?

The location you have will meter the current of your circuit and the voltage of one battery. So the wattage reading will be ( watts/2 ) one-half the total watts. Hook it up at the esc to get total watts.

So if I make the connection at the (hook up here) arrow, I should be able to get the full readout?

Yes. If your watt meter is rated for the power output your good.
