Between battery and ESC as you would on a brushed set up,+ or - does not matter which pole,I use car type flat blade fuses and measure current of motor under load then fuse just above that,used this method on my boats and never had any trouble.....Ray.

Don't put one between the motor and ESC
If you must use a fuse then between the ESC and the Battery

Always between the battery and ESC NEVER between ESC and motor or the ESC is not protected so ignore the 3 wires as it does not apply...Ray.
