I've run 16 and 12 with the ESCs all wired in series for my wethex design in the past. New builds wire them 3 in each chain instead of all six. Either way works flawlessly even though I had concerns of the higher current loads on the ESC power wires closest to the battery. Turns out there was no need to be concerned.

As for power distribution, I've use off the shelf and custom boards, bus strips, hard wiring, deans connectors soldered together, 3 x 4 way crimp connectors, and power posts. All works just depends on what your frame is made of (power posts require a wood of fiberglass mounting. Any metal or carbon is bad). and how much room you have to route power wires.
