The Futaba HD switch is the most reliable ... personally I like the fail open pin flag switches if you can find them (like the one on the Arizona Regulator)

3DManA1, that appears to be the switch for the Scott Gray Reactor HVX.

Check out the options from Perfect Regulators as well.

I do not trust mechanical switches in high vibration applications even though they may be "heavy duty".
A number of years ago I changed all my mechanical on/off switches to BEHOTEC electronic DPS.

It is widely used in Europe and I have never ever heard of a switch failure being reported.

I like the Futaba and JR HD switches. Reasonably priced and nothing too fancy. They have heavy wires and solid mechanical click from one position to the other. I have never had one even look at me funny. They just work. If you're in a tight spot, go with the JR because the Futaba wires come out each side.

Hi guys

The BIG difference between the JR and Futaba HD switches is:

The JR switches both the red and black wires.

The Futaba switches only the red wire, but in parallel. This creates some redundancy and increased electrical capacity.

Paul

Red B.,
Interesting switch. But, you have to keep track of a tiny little pin?

Thanks,

Fromeco badger switch is very nice. It's got plastic posts so that the switch electronics are isolated from vibes. A team mate recommended them to me.

They only have 1 power lead though. This is fine with the futaba BLS servos, but may not be enough if you have some really hungry servos.

Having had bad luck with receiver switches in the past I went simple on my turbine... direct 2S lipo through an ArmSafe plug so I could easily power it up and down by mounting the socket outside the canopy.

No worries about small spring contacts in a switch failing and amperage capacity for servos/FBL controller isn't a problem. The only real drawback I've found is you can lose the male arming plug; having a couple spares on-hand is a good idea.
