Note that the voltage presented to the motor is either full battery or ground. The ESC is dropping the voltage via PWM, so you can indeed just measure the voltage of the battery. Presumably the meter is true RMS and thus the current you see times the input voltage is you see is the true Pin at any throttle setting.
