PostSubject: Alternatives for Wyachi switch???   Fri Jan 21, 2011 1:11 pm

I have been looking for alternatives to using the MS05 switches.....

Any suggestions????

I know a deans plug will work but then you have to insert it inside the bot and I dont really like that idea...

I have been looking for a while now on the net and havent really seen too many alternatives...

Any suggestions are welcome....

The tiny paddle switch I designed seems to work well but is a bit on the insanely expensive side.

rjw has his modded deans switch that looks nice.

Whyachi has a MS-02 (I think) that they've been thinking about making, might be able to talk them into making one for you. (uses a fiberglass key to turn off an otherwise always on switch)

I have been looking at battery cut off switches for trailers and race cars....

A little big in size but my main concern is cost...

I have found some for under 15 bucks but like I said they are a bit too big.

i'd be careful with the wyachi switches, we've had them break for no reason, and they are expensive, find a big toggle switch, and take off the plastic cover, then all your left with is a little metal nob, which is actually quite hard to flip on/off cause its small, we use these on all of our bots and have not have one break yet

shut off a bunch of toggle switches, terrible idea
whaychi switch is the way to go, we would always go a quarter turn past when the LED would turn on and never had a problem
