Absolutely Steve 👍
Alternative is to make a holder for the magnet to prevent it getting knocked off by weeds etc.
Also agree that any Failsafe' circuit
s must have an independent power supply
Place to put the switch
, or latching relay, is definitely in place of the little slide switch
usually supplied on the ESC.
Just checked on some of my ESCs, Graupner and mTroniks, the red lead to the switch
is NOT connected to the red lead supplying the RX and servo
s via the built
in BEC. Guess the switch
just triggers an FET switch
inside the ESC. So the normal 500mA limit of reed switch
es will be enough. if a latching relay is used make sure the pull-in current is less than 500mA. Have fun All, cheers, Doug 😎
Eric; which sub is your mate build
I have a Type 1A U-Boat dynamic diver, speed and planes only, and a kit for an Akula 2 which will be a static diver, with tank etc.
