I've just received my Kill Switch but I can't make it work with my Aurora 9...do you know if there's any issue with it? I've read in some forums that Aurora 9 has an issue with the Optic Kill Switches...
Thanks for your answer but I use it with a 6.0 volts battery. I don't know how to program it...i mean, i put it in a spare channel, then program the switch but isn't an "on/off" switch...so I have to program EPA and there's where I get lost!.. And, if you say some Aurora 9's are working with those switches without any failure means the forums are wrong...
Do you how did the aurora 9's owners did it? Thanks!
Is the power input & output incorrectly labelled in the manual? Some people have stated that it worked when connecting the power input to the JR female output connector? As most batteries have a JR Male connector it would make more sense if the connections were reversed compared to the diagram.
please i need help to configure this on Turnigy 9xr, already tried all the ways I know but I can not, Turnigy 9x I used to fly but this can not
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
Very handy device for killing that gasser, turning on an accessory or whatever.

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.
