Ordered switches for the SPAD from a store that had good
recommendations on here and rcuniverse and the switches
were expensive and the quality really is bad.
I don't like to complain about stuff but these really look
chintzy.
They are on - off with the charge connection built in and
I used them to get the plane done, because I just want to finish the darn thing.
I hate to complain but for $15 a piece I feel like
I got screwed.

I sense $15 worth of moral outrage about switches we can't see, from a store we don't know. This is the proper forum for this type of thing.

I have them in the plane and as soon as I can afford to replace them I'll take them out.
The switches are from radicalrc and the description
on the switches leads you to believe that they are
heavy duty switches and durable in construction.
The ones I got have a backing plate made from 1/16 plastic, and both backing plates (I bought 2 switches) where the attaching screw meets the backing plate, had the screws in so tight, that they were broken. I ended up ca'ing the switches onto the fuselage.

Heavy Duty Switch with Charge Jack Futaba
Avoid leaving your tattle tale charge lead hanging out by using this switch with built in charge jack. Little tab opens and closes dust cover over charge receptacle. Shown open here. Heavy duty switch inside so it is appropriate for any giant scale application. Wire is heavy duty 22 gauge and switch is double row knife. Ultimate in switching reliability and convenience.
JR photographed for example but this part number is Futaba and comes with Red/Black and white wires with correct plugs. Great in giant scale a/c.
