If negative and positive is switched if one fails to contact that switch fails.
I have had a couple customers loose brand new planes because of these switches. (not sold by me because I know better).

Check it out doug.
The guy that started it all.
I let it slide.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

OK I missed it as I was focussing on the comment about negative not switching well. I couldn't see why electrons would care where in the circuit the switch was. They still travel from point a to point b.

Oh, I picked up on that 2yrs ago when I bought a couple of them from Brad Egan.
When Dan had some problems on his EME60 powered cub at the fish farm. We corrected the intermittant open on his Aeroworks cub.

I have been using MPI switches since I started with gas. No troubles with those either. Guess its good to be like a combine: listen to it all, sort the usable info, and chuck the rest out the back.

Lots of tripe from a few in the West without any qualifying conversation.
Well, had one fail..one was good....NFG to me..what more is there too say.

I don't need to write a novel just to tell someone...save your $$$ and buy something decent.

But you can always board WESTJET and head east!!
