Power boards/expanders really needed?

    Terry is basically the guy I take a lot of advice from, he is very sound in his reasoning.

    I think that's pretty much Jase's setup! (except maybe the ibecs)

    I've had the failsafe switches give out on me a time or two to where I couldn't turn the plane off after a flight. I used to keep a few spares in my trailer for that reason. Other than that, this setup works great.

    Thanks for all the replys.

    HH doesn't give those power safe Rx's away that's for sure!

    Yes, Jase runs this same setup, I think they run ignition packs though. I actually run these Booma pin switches with the P-safe: https://duraliteflightsystems.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=154_158&product_id=472

    Compared to the price of an RX and a power expander.....kind of a wash if it's about cost.

    True. Problem is I have several Rx's already that aren't power safe...

    Easy solution: http://giantscalenews.com/categories/classifieds.88/

    If you are set on using stuff you have, then you are stuck with power expander and a soft switch or fiber-optic switch.

    Hey some people are better at pulling stuff out from where the sun don't shine than others :eek::laughing:

    I'm with Terry though, I'd sell the receivers and get the ones purpose built for GS applications.

    Anyone know if Spektrum is working on a new series of power safe receivers? Seems like the AR12120 and AR9110 have both been on back order for a long time.
