Sorry... I don't know why you see anything else.

The video link for the Youtube video didn't work, and your photo (when clicked to enlarge it) produced your photo, together with pics (ads) of outstanding Asian women on the Wirral 8O
A direct link to the best source of the switch would, as others have suggested, be very helpful. :thumbup:

If you type in "SKYRC 10 amp Power Switch" on ebay you will get a list of different vendors selling this item some Freepost and very much cheaper than others but all apparently the same.

This is the description from Amazon:
"...SKYRC introduces the POWER SWITCH, a tiny MCU controlled on/off switch for your radio controlled model.

A simple push button operates the switch meaning to eliminate the problems associated with intermittent contact of an ordinary mechanical switch.The sealed unit is plastic and can easily be mounted to the transponder mount of your model or anywhere else you can mount it using double sided tape. (Two kinds of bottom covers are included, user can change the bottom cover.)

The switch also features a LiPo mode, by turning this on, the switch unit will auto detect low LiPo voltage and cut off power to protect your LiPo from over dis-charging. This of course can be turned off if you have other safeguards in place or using NiMH/NiCad battery.

Additionally, the power switch informs you about the remaining capacity and condition of your battery pack..."

Roys photograph does not show the end of the cable,
It is not a simple 2/3 pin JST plug that the usual power switch has that simply plugs into the MFU,
This is a multi-cable that ends in 2 plugs and one of them goes into your receiver which means this switch will not work with a Taigen or Heng Long set up only with an aftermarket radio.

I do beg your pardon, Shaun, for coming up short. :D I was about to invite you to post a pic of the other, elusive, half (most pics only show the on/off end). But, I shall save you from an impossible task with this wee snappette:

Incidentally, these meddlesome predictive text tools converted 'lipo' to lips'. Good thing I checked.. >:<

Ensure that your pics are no larger than 351kb (something like a tad less than 1920((W)) x1080 ((H)) pixels). Just click on the 'upload attachment' button (as you did before ?), and point the browser to the whereabouts of the photo you want to upload. You can also use 3rd party sites to post pics (Imgur, for example). Hope this helps.
