Re-Locating the On/Off switch
Couldn't stand the simple task of switching the on/off switch under the cowling, so I moved it to the bottom next to the pull starter.


Anyone else move thiers to an easier location?

I think that is the best location I ever saw it. Did you need to remove any parts and disassemble the frames in order to put the switch there? Did you cut a slot on the carbon?

I ended up attaching an extension rod to my switch, but your solution seems better.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks!!
I didn't have to relocate noth'n, but remove the landing gear, witch holds the switch/plate in place.
I cut the slot in a piece of carbon sheet to fit the switch with a drummel tool.

Battery switch operation
heres my fix - works really well, a rod through the stock switch postion, a couple of plastic covered tags around some tygon fuel line supporting the rod at the back end with a Robbe canopy knob screwed onto the thread.

Stock switch location
ya sorry the switch is in the stock location - all I did was add a remote extension via a rod through the hole in the switch lug, it results in a very tidy easy to get at means of switching outside the canopy and away from the muffler
