Those solutions are good to up to around 3000w on 12S in my opinion.
Larger that that and I don't trust the connectors. And the added wiring distance is not the best for the ESC either (without adding extra capacitance).
The Castle arming lockout is good for the Castle Edge series.
I've moved over to HobbyWing ESCs now and pushing 5500-8000 watts = I use extra caution (always stand behind the prop and restrain the plane), a throttle cut switch on the tx, and don't arm the planes until shortly before taxi (when possible).
