SEC­OND SAFETY KILL SWITCH

Model Airplane News - - TIPS & TRICKS - Danny McDaniel, Murfrees­boro, Ten­nessee

For safety rea­sons, you should al­ways add a kill switch to any air­plane pow­ered by a gas en­gine. It’s also a good idea to add a servo-op­er­ated kill switch so that you can shut off your en­gine dur­ing flight if needed. You can do this with a stan­dard au­to­mo­tive twopo­si­tion on/off tog­gle switch. Find a small plas­tic ca­ble an­chor strap, and at­tach it to the tog­gle and the cle­vis for the pushrod used to shut off the en­gine. I usu­ally use the gear switch.
