Might be wrong here but those Farnell bits seem to be more jack than switch

used to get mine from marlin but now looking for a source too!

Hi Tag

Just to let you know you have an extra digit in the RS Part numbers. They should be:

329-9685 Miniature r/a chassis jack socket,2.5mm

878-6884 Black Cable Mount Phone Connector

Athough, readung it again, I think the extra 1 at the end of the part number is your qty. Just thought I would clarify as searching for them with the "1" on the end on the website doesnt bring up the articles.

Just so anyone not familiar, the socket acts as the switch.   Plug a non-connected jack plug into it breaks the power supply circuit to the Rx.  (EDIT added)  Pull it out to fly.

Plug in a jack connected to your charger charges the battery.   Put a ribbon on the non-connected jack plug so's it's obviously in there and the Rx is non-operational  :thumbsup:

Sorry - can't seem to edit the post above  and it has wrapped by text between the middle of the diagram and the end of it .   What I would like to know is the last diagram saying the negative wire should be in the centre pin of the jack and the positive on the outer ?  Thanks taggarc
