I've done some searches but haven't found any pics of anyone using a standard switch, not the 2 in one or pin switch. I would really appreciate any good photos of where to mount this thing on a stock Align carbon 2.0 mm frame. Thanks.

Crasher, No wonder your not flying yours. You have had it this long and still cant turn it on and off..

some guys have modified the mini servo holder from aling and mounted it opposite the elevator servo. I think bulldogs has it in his gallery. It looks clean too.

Mounted mine in the back empty servo hole, one screw in the bottom of the 2 holes for the servo, biased towards the nose of the heli side, and just tightened the 2nd screw against the frame, works great.

Thanks guys! Yeah bad, sure would have helped if I could have turned it on, lol. Actually, I'm switching over from the pin switch, had a very bad experience with the pin, almost burned down my car.

Long story but I had dropped my trex off at my hobby shop for some work while I was moving recently. Picked it up, set it in the back of my suv. Minutes later my nephew told me my car was on fire. Turns out the pin switch came out or was not in all the way when we set it back there, it came out, all electronics came on while the blades were locked down. The high speed servos overheated, caught fire, smoked out the car. It was not fun. Had to replace two burned up servos and the governor. Gyro got real hot but seems ok. So that's why no more pin switches for me.

I can't wait for that switch mount. Is it available yet? And where is it meant to be mounted, anyone know?

I put mine here, and seems to work OK for me. Saves buying extra brackets.

I don't think it is available yet. They just started showing up on websites and I haven't seen them listed in stock. It mounts in the front over the skid mount just like the silver frame doublers in Coolpowered's pics but it has the integrated switch mount.

The switch is mounted on the bottom plate. I have it attached with epoxy and zip ties. I used the zip ties to hold it in place while the epoxy dried, but never removed them.

There is a good reason that you should never transport your machine with a 2s Lion connected to the system....................and you found it.

I dont know about the switch being too close to the fueling system...Mine mounted upside down in the batt. pack and RX mount..bottom piece of the mount is wide enough to mount the switch..Easy access since the canopy has a hole for airflow...
