I just noticed today that the voltage displayed by the lights on the switch box can be varied by messing/moving the switch. I noticed that the voltage on a pack was showing only one red light. I went to turn the unit off and as I touched the switch it then began to show a proper voltage for the pack.. This unit has never caused a problem before. Has anyone seen this happen?

What voltage regulators are you all running on a 7.4 2S lipo setup?

The switch on those are sometimes known for going bad. A long time ago when I ran one I opened up the case and soldered it in the "on" position and sealed the switch hole with some lawn & garden rubberized sealant.

There are a few posts around where it would reset the electronics on the heli due to power cutting in and out during flight. Many times the switches just wore out but also sometimes the nitro would get in there and cause some havoc. Once I soldered the switch I never had an issue after that.

Ron at HeliProz South has a good write-up on this problem. Very simple fix if you're inclined to do so:

Contact spray fixed the problem.. (Gun cleaner/brake cleaner/electronic cleaner). It now reads voltage properly.
