Did you use a voltage above 6V? Many ignitions work with 4.8V and this device start working from 6V

Crashtruk ..... You must be doing something wrong. I just received two of these units and they both bench test OK. Works on 4.8 Volts as well. See opjose's discussion below. Cheers Jim

Hello, yes there is a little red LED that is part of the whole assembly. It cannot be removed and mounted separately though from what I can tell since its part of the board :( I was going to run a Y harness off of it and connect one lead to the engine ignition and one to one of their night flying 3 LED lights Hobbyking sells here. Like this..... www.link That way you can pick your color and it would be brighter. I did something similar but with the digital voltage gauge so I know how many volts were going to the ignition...but would only show when power was on.

Nice switch, quite small and working ok, but I have a few comments : ALL my batteries fitted with a JR type plug have a male plug (so they can be plugged into a receiver) so why is the "input voltage" plug of the switch also a male? And the outout is a JR female, the exact oposite of what I would have expected (check the manual in the "file tab"). Also, the switch is powered via the switched power source, not via the Rx, and anything below 6V will not get it to start, so I can't use it to switch on/off the 4.8V bat. that powers the ignition module of my RCG 30. And I can't use a higher voltage either as the CDI instructions clearly state that anything above 6V will kill it. : ( As I believe that it's true of most CDI units, that pretty much makes it unusable as a kill switch. Or have I missed something??

Product worked as discribed,in the manual which you can find in the file section it states battery into a male plug and ignition into a female plug,my battery comes with a male and ignition is female so the plugs are incorrect in the manual but you can plug it in reverse it stll works fine.
this is a quality product for a great price you wont find this quality for this price anyware

I was puzzled why the switch didn't work till I read the comments on 6V input requirement. No big deal for me since I intend to use Lipo for the CDI, so this is my wiring: Lipo -> mechancal switch -> kill switch -> BEC -> CDI. That solves the 6V conflict between the kill switch and the CDI.
