You could always pick up a bottle of rye, the plane, and head up to Beaver town to visit him. I sure that would cheer him up.

So I guess the KISS method would just be two wires, stripped then twisted together for "ON", untwisted for "OFF"?

Sure would he is quite looking forward to the CARF. But, with out an engine sitting on the table, it would sadden his heart.


Besides I'm waiting on some header material.

Dale,,
Ya I switched ALL my JR Rx over to the powersafe ones and son't have to wory about switches. I use an electronic switch for ignition, tapped off of one battery. On some planes I put a switch between the tap and the electronic switch to prevent idddle drain! I'm using the 922 but same differnce.

Switching over to JETI this winter and they NOW have a similar powersafe option!

I doubt any of the J.R. stuff is compattible. Posibly why more powersafe receivers are coming available.
I too use 922's and Match boxes on the ailerons on one airframe so far. Quite like that set-up.
