You could use a brushed motor ESC and effectively replace the whole control circuit for the drill.  The power connector connects to your battery, the signal (white) ONLY to arduino and the output to the drills power drive.  Gets rid of the whole power activation circuit.

It works with standard remote control output signals, easily replicated with arduino.
Just a thought. :)
