Is this diagram correct?

Ill be running 10S...2 x 5S 3000mah packs. Im using a Castle BEC. Its good up to 6S. Can I pull voltage from just one pack as configured in the picture? I am trying to eliminate a switch I would need between 1 battery and the BEC.
In the pic, the arming plug, mounted on the outside, would power up the RX and the ESC.

That looks ok to me.

Or you could get a CC BEC Pro and hook it up in parallel with the ESC. That would be a better solution.

No, that is NOT correct, do not hook it up like that

the "master negative" , i.e. where the negative goes to the ESC is where you have to have your negative cable to BEC.
