Do they make a switch that wires inline with the Lipo battery terminals to cut electrical contact with the ESC?

I haven't seen one that's RC specific. Depending on the setup, it would have to be a pretty high current switch. The esc logs from my MMX in my savage flux show 180A spikes.

Could probably use something like this, then it wouldn't hinder current flow:

Kind of bulky though...

You would ideally want to set this up on a relay that would be switched on by a typical RC switch.
Relays are built to handle current flow. A switch will melt and catch fire in a hurry.
