Paul, you will have to include the ESC to receiver wiring along with the battery wiring.
My Drake II has the wires in a 1/16 ply covered slot in the pylon. The ESC was water proofed at CC and worked fine in a radial cowl arrangement.
'Corrosion X' the ESC and use the next gauge size larger wires for the extended battery leads.
You will no doubt use a standard separate air borne battery arrangement for servo/ receiver power.
It may be necessary to fabricate a front hatch in your Neptune.
I have a Sea Cruiser in process that routes all the wiring through a passage in the pylon. It has a geared ASTRO 40 and the ASTRO 112 ESC in the pylon.This design has a forward hatch for the servos and std battery pack. I am using niMH batteries for motive power and they will be accessible from the wing bay.
Flowers to your dear wife !!!! art
