    ๐Ÿ“ Lipo battery - whether to switch

    I am looking for help/guidance regarding switches in my motor circuit.
    My questions are:
    1. Should I put a switch on the battery supply ?
    2. If so, what rating should it be ?
    3. There is no switch to the receiver/ESC at present and I believe there should be one. Can anyone confirm this please.

    Now, for reference, the circuit comprises the following:
    A 5S 5000mAh 30C Lipo battery; 40A fuse; 90A marine ESC; 3 20A fuses; a 46x50 brushless motor; Flysky receiver. (as yet no switches)

    Any guidance will be greatly appreciated. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Somethings word here. Can't seem to reply to your post but I can edit it. Lew

    Hi Wolle:
    This is my TON-12, purchased from a German sailor, more than 14 years ago.
    Now, it sails under the Spanish flag and remains as agile and pleasant to sail as ever. Very good boat!!

    Hi:
    Many thanks to everyone, to RNinMunich, River Rat, jimdogge...
    We will try to buy everything at Krick.de, because from Germany, the shipping and customs costs are much less and the shipping is faster
    Again, thanks for your excellent and quick responses.
    Neil, thanks for your advice.

    Good afternoon, sailors.
    A very dear friend of mine is finishing a Riva Aquarama from plans, at 1:10 scale. Now, he finds himself with the necessary acquisition of the metallic details of the deck: Navigation lights, cleats, vents, etc.
    Could you tell me a store where to buy these accessories? Any link? Anyone who can print them in 3D?
    Does anyone on this forum have these accessories for sale?
    Thank you very much in advance for your answers.-

    Good afternoon friends:
    What's new!!... when I went to get the model of the PT-109 out of my storage room, I realized that it IS NOT FROM ITALERI but from Lindberg and that its scale is 1:32... what a surprise, hahaha!!
    So, I will have to work under these new parameters... still, I can't get over my astonishment!!. I was convinced it was 1:35, hahaha!๐Ÿ˜›๐Ÿ˜›๐Ÿ˜›๐Ÿ˜›๐Ÿ˜›๐Ÿ˜›

    Hi:
    I had kept an ITALERI model of JFK's PT-109 for more than nine years.
    What is my intention now? Build it for RC, but configured as PT-596 or PT-617... since I have gotten a lot of information from both boats. For now, I'm worried about building with a 3D printer, the 40mm cannon that it had in the bow... probably salvaged from some scrap of a P-39 Airacobra fighter.
    I'll let you know the progress. This winter I'm going to work hard on it...
    Any preference between the PT-596 or the PT-617?
    PT-617 info:
    PT Boat 617, a National Historic Landmark, is located at Battleship Cove as part of the museum's historic vessel collection
