    Switches

    Anyone know of a decent switch that I can use between the battery and the ESC on a powered glider?

    The battery position, and hence the position of the plug/socket is not very accessible, and it's nice to have the easy option of a switch in a convenient position.

    All I can find is rocker switches, or similar, that are basically mains ones and don't look up to carrying the current.

    I wouldn't use a rocker switch. I doubt they'd carry enough current.

    I think there are switches available, possibly magnetic ones but I can't think where I've seen them.

    Found an electronic one that uses a MOSFET.
    Only $18 and yet more to go wrong.
    Don't think so.

    Maplin and local car shop only have switches up to 16 amps.
    Need reliable ones that will handle 30 or so.
    Gone back to a couple of bullet connectors and a link.
