I'm currently running ReactorX2 reg's with my vbar units. I'm considering eliminating the reg's and running direct lipo. I have the reg's set for 8.4, so they're sitting as an expensive switch..and constant voltage, which isn't a big issue for me.
I would prefer a switch to prevent canopy removal after each flight. I'll be using all open vbar slots for power, so the perfect regulator switch won't work. Any suggestions?
Much thanks!

Fromeco switch

Remind me to show you my switches this weekend I had Fromeco build for me for just this purpose. They are solid state, pin switch driven and have 3 hd leads to go into receiver as necessary. Totally slick and not a bad price at all.

I just made a Deans connector at the rear of the heli. Super easy

Ron,

I'm fine without a switch on the 800, due to the battery location being in the rear.
I'm just trying to prevent removing the canopy each flight on my 720, hence looking for a switch.
I haven't started the Whiplash yet, so not sure on that one. Btw, how do you like your whippys?

Solid state switch.

This is the switch Fromeco made for me. Three power leads to the receiver all with HD wire. And then because it is solid state you just use a pin connector on it ... fails in the "on" position :-) Not sure if this would work for what you are looking for. Its what I use on everything I have gone to 7.4v receiver/servos on.
