Apparently the Arizona reg draws a small amount of current when shutdown, does anybody know roughly how much current it actually is?

somewhere in that range.
I leave my stuff plugged in for months at a time and maybe put in a couple hundred milliamps when I top off

That unit of measure and "per day" don't go together. Perhaps you mean 2 mAh per day? I know there is a thread on this.

Its very small, I too leave my helis "off" for many weeks at a time with minimal discharge from the LiIon pack.

I'm curious to know WHY the Arizona puts a slow drain on the batteries.

I know it's negligible, but I'm so anal about it that I disconnect the regulator from the battery at the field whenever the canopy comes off. (call me crazy, but it's just a habit I developed and can't get rid of)

+ And when you're using abbreviations "mA" and "mAh", make sure you capitalize that "A"!

A bit OT here but since I still use a pin flag,like it a lot really, and have heard of others having trouble with it I always unplug it. If my blades are folded, its unplugged for sure.

It sounds like it uses a solid state switch , so it requires a small amount of current to keep the switch in the 'off' state .

At the end of the day , it gets dark .

Not me. Pin switches were kinda cool at first, but soon the novelty wore off.

The heli is easy to turn on, but often a PITA to shut off (Especially when the switch is somewhere under the canopy and you can't find the hole)

I'm done with the Pin switches forever!!
Here's a modified standard switch to work for the Fromeco unit

correct. It is a solid state failsafe switch. There is power going to the regulator all the time to keep it in the off position.
