Does anyone have a solid HD on/off switch? Something with a thicker wire that can handle EC3's?

Thanks for your help.

Go check out Fromeco stuff, they might have something that fits your needs.

Thanks,

On my Spectra gasser, I have a pin-flag switch made from Digikey parts capable of at least 20 amps current. The switch itself cannot fail from vibrations because once you pull the pin out and the switch is "open", the circuit is complete thus turning the aircraft "on".

The only downfall is that there is a minimal amount of current draw even when the switch is "off". It is about 0.1mA.

You can see the switch as the "remove before flight" flag near the rear of the canopy.

I had a switch vibrate shut many years ago on a plank. Switches are prone to failure.

Im using the perfect regulator remote switch with deans connectors. I am really liking it so far. It is a Fail ON
switch.

It looks like the perfect switch is for the radio/servo subsystem, not the motor.

Is that the intended application?

I guess if you trust your motor to not spool up if the radio is powered off, that would be a good switch application.

oops, bounced it!

This will be for electronics, not motor.

Looking more for a traditional switch, I'm not a pin flag fan

Mike Ive been using the JR heavy duty switch for years now with no issues running it on 8v too. The wires are a little heavier than your standard switch.

Fromeco
The screws on the Fromeco are too close together making mounting difficult.

The Super Switch and the the homemade switch look best for my application.

I don't need or want the charge port on the switch so looks like the homemade version might be best.

Ugghh, why can't someone just sell these.

That'd be too easy. I can relate, like to have a similar setup.

Perfect Regulator is the closest I could find too.
Has two JR connectors for the receiver and a deans connector in, fail safe but does not use a pin and flag, but rather just a mini switch for off/on.
