All of a sudden, my regulator is impossible to switch off using the pin. Worked last time I was flying, and the heli has only been stored for 2 weeks.

What can be the problem? The mechanic switch is fine.

Feel a bit of a waste to spend $100 on a regulator that does not work after 2 months.... Is there a guarantee?

It might be that the switch is broken. Email fromeco and they willl answer your questions.

Yes there is a warranty. Call Mike or Kurt at Fromeco.

1-503-766-3261

I am fully confident that they will take care of it for you.

Do you use a pin flag switch? Or a regular style switch?

Good luck.

Yes... email fromeco... the switch does go bad... they will send you a new one...in the meantime you can sodder the neg and positive wire together on a charger lean and just plug that into the reg... that will shut it off

patriot: if that shuts it down then the problem isn't in the reg itself but in the pinswitch.

I dont think he is using a pin switch based on the above remark. I could be wrong though. I asked the question, just havent heard back from him yet.

ok good point.

I am curious then why he would mension the mech switch. If it will not switch off using the pin, then the tab inside has been bent. You will need a new pin flag switch. I have had that happen to me as well.

He may have wiring problem.

If the pin switch shorts to turn off reg and the wiring is broken, the reg will never see the short to shut off the reg.

True BTDT.

Only problem is that the reg was designed to go open in case of failure so I guess that if the reg goes bezerk you will experience an "always on" condition too.

Best way to check would be to short the pins of the wires that go to the pin and see if the reg goes off... if it doesn't, its the reg itself.

It sure is a lot nicer to have it stuck on, on the bench ....

than stuck off, in the air

Yes, I have tried to short the wires with no better result. It just won't go off

I think I'll return it to my local shop in Norway....

Thanks for good support from Arizona!

you may have shorted the internal fuse which failsafes to always on.

that is a safety feature designed in the regulator. You need to send it in to have the fuse replaced.

btw: it's doing as its designed to so "stay on"

Nas,

Right it is not in the reg its in the pin switch...as stated in my first post
Sounds to me like he can;t get it to shut off.... like I said the pin switch can stop working which mine did....
I took and old futaba charge lead and soddered the neg and positive together and plug that into the regulator....this will close the circuit acting like the pin switch...therefore shutting the unit off...
This is how i shut my reg off in my 90... I still haven't replaced the pin...I guess it works for me
