Fail safe switch

Accidentally I've plunged the fail safe switch to the charge channel slot and burned it, it was only for a millisecond.
Checked the system, all is working...servos on all the channels, like nothing happened, only the smell of burned circuit.
Can I keep flying with this system, is the charge channel is paralleled ?

Thanks

Adi

I would never use a electrical component after the factory installed smoke has been released

Hi,
I don't understand why you burned something. Our Failsafe switch only shorts the signal and ground and the signal on the charge ports is unconnected.

That said, you probably only burned up the trace that connects the charge port to the Deans connector. If so you are fine. Its really up to you if you want to send it in to have it checked.
