Default Regulator/ing. cutoff setup

Just double checking myself. Will you fellers tell me if I'm correct?

* Using SF failsafe pin/flag
* Battery to the Bat/switch connection on the Ing cutoff unit (unplugging at end of day)
* Ing connection from cutoff unit to SM regulator.
* Regulator output to Ing module.

Oh Yeah, powering with 2s lipo.

Thanks,
Steve.....

Hi,
Yes you have it correct. The regulator should always connect directly to the ignition.

Does this mean that powering the ignition cutoff with a switch that has a built in regulator is not acceptable. (2s lippo) to switch w/ regulator to smartfly module to ignition.

Sorry.

But I just came off of a very very bad experience with a different type of ignition cutoff -(type and manufacture will not be mentioned) and I want to get it right this time.

Depends on how the switch/regulator was designed by the manufacturer. When we come out with a regulated Cutoff receiver unit it will be OK to use as a switch. BTW, our Cutoff receivers only draw about 2mAH per Day out of your battery. I have left mine hooked up for 3 months with only a small drop on the battery. Still best to unplug if you know you will not fly for a month or more.

Ya may just be simpler to skip the switch Dahly. Thats what im doin, just use the "soft switch" capibility of the unit, and then unplug when im done for the day. So 2s LiPo -> SF Ign Kill -> reg -> ignition

Perfect!

Will be buying two very soon.

Is the regulated due out soon?
This would be ultimate solution for me!

The regulated probably will not be out until the late spring, roughly around the time of Toledo.

At the moment we are testing the dual-ignition version and expect to start testing the single ignition version soon. It will still be 8 weeks or so until we can get these into production. It takes 4-6 weeks to order printed circuit boards and components before we can even start assembly.
