RCexl Kill switch

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Well today marked a milestone for me. It was the first time I started a gas engine (DLE30). The cowl is a real PITA to take off, and I had no idea if the servo was set up in the proper orientation (rear carb). Wellllllll, it wasn't. I discovered that a 18X8 prop on this plane will tow a field box and a 2 gallon jerry can around.

I caught the bugger and managed to get it throttled down. Shame on me! I had a RCexl Opto Gas Engine Kill Switch v1.3 sitting on my bench down in the build room. Has anyone used one of these remote kill switches, and what do you think of it?

If was almost effortless to hook up, and now I have 2 options to kill the engine, the switch on the side of the plane or via gear switch (or any assigned switch) on the Tx ( I use a JR 9303).

I guess I should have included a link: http://www.rcaer.com/userfiles/file/...20How%20To.pdf

I think it's the best 12 bucks I've spent in a while.
