My 500mah Life buffer was $15 from Amain. Protek.
You can remember to turn it on by booting up your system with the buffer and then plugging in the main packs. It's just a habit you get into.

If you are using a buffer pack (7.4 volts)are the mode 1 and 2 lights supposed to stay blinking (alternating red and green) when you initialize the (IKON) flybarless unit?

I hate to bring this up again but I just got a Kontronik 160, so I want to run the buffer pack but I am not sure how to do the Y harness, I already have my lead coming off the slave channel on the ESC, and I have a buffer pack plugged into my switch harness, so I take that lead and the lead coming off my ESC slave channel and plug those into a Y harness and then plug the Y harness lead into my FBL controller??? Or do I plug the slave lead into my FBL controller and my buffer pack lead coming from the HD switch into the FBL controller as well ?? Can someone explain it a little better step by step please?D.

Very interesting point.

Let me resume conditions...

A buffer pack... You install that because you may operate your servos without main packs installed. So, you need a switch to finish working.
Other way, the buffer pack remain connected and get exhausted.

A buffer pack... If your ESC got fire while flying, buffer pack takes control of electronic on board and you can landing your heli. Then, you operated a switch to turn off this thing.

In both configuration, you need a switch between buffer pack and electronic.

Look this pics...

In case I, your ESC is charging your buffer pack while flying and in case of fire, your buffer is ready to work.
HD switch operate to protect your buffer pack.

In case II, you may forgot to turn on your HD switch...so, you can fly your heli but ESC don't charge your buffer pack and in case of fire... Good bye.

You don't actually need a 'Y' lead, you can plug the buffer battery or switch if you have one into a spare socket on your receiver.

Ok, so I can plug my BP into my Rx along with my throttle lead and then plug the slave lead from the ESC into my fbl controller? How does the ESC know to charge the BP if they are plugged in separate?
Sorry but it's things like this I get confused on.
I like the Y with BP plugged into it along with the slave lead then a switch in between all that and the Y plugged into the FBL controller or Rx like in diagram 1 from Roj

I cannot give a technical reason, but I believe that the Rx and FBL effectively share the same +/- rails so everything is connected anyway. I use VBar so only one box, but from what I recall from using it with Futaba Rx before there is no problem.

If you are more comfortable using a ‘y’ lead go ahead, I would if there is no spare socket on the Rx or FBL, but it means more connections.

Okay, thank you Jabber for the info, I will try it either way when I get to that point, I'm still collecting all my parts to get my big AH-6 in the air, this was one of the things holding me up on my Kontronik 160, sorry for sounding so dumb but I didn't want to smoke my $700 ESC...........D.

Like Dr Ben suggest....
Put the bec from kosmik at 7.7v and live the buffer pack at storage (7.6v).The bec from kosmik keep the buffer pack always at storage so you don't need to charge-discharge storage the buffer pack when you don't fly.
