I run the Fromeco Badger Slider switches in all my HV helis. Heavy duty input from battery, two RX outputs for redundancy. Its a solid-state switch that fails on if it ever fails.

It's the only switch I trust my helis to. The only downside to it is that you have to modify the switch mounting cutout a bit to make it fit (I just mounted it in an entirely different location anyway)

It's very robust and even has a nice blue LED that is easily seen if you accidently leave it on. Other than the small mounting nuissance, its about as perfect as a switch can be.

The Badger Switch is Difficult to Mount and the screw heads are easily stripped.

Agreed Dave... But different hardware can easily be used and the one-time headache when mounting was worth it to me for the design and redundancy of the switch.Art Hughes

What RX do you have?

I'm using a Gryphon pin flag switch myself....very cool.
I used it on my Scott Gray Reactor X2 and using it now on my AR7100R.

Works great.

Like a grenade...Pull the pin and it's hot

It is a fails closed switch which means if it fails,the heli stays powered up.
I literally never use the word literally right.
