Does anyone make a heavy duty switch I can install between my 12s lipo and my esc so I can turn on and off without having to remove the cowl.

Personally I have never used one-of these but I have read that they work extremely-well (Henseleit forum) and are a favorite of guys running Speed type set-up's with fully-enclosed Canopies and tails.

This looks very cool! I like the idea of putting the "Fuel cap" on the canopy, although it would be a pain to remove the canopy and therefore would have to remove the connectors to both the battery and the ESC. I guess it can be mounted inside on some part of the carbon frame. Love the idea of having a switch on the field.

Which one would work for a 12s setup?

That seems to me like adding another electronic point of failure, and a lot of expense all for the purpose of not having to remove the canopy.

If you just ran your wires down to the lower part of the frame (or wherever you'd like easy access to the "plug", you can just mount 1/2 of an EC5 inline to one leg of your power. Mount that to the frame for a solid mount. Put a loopback on the other half of the EC-5 and use that 1/2 as your 'switch' to close the circuit.

if it ain't broke, break it.
