MPI miracle switch or formeco sahara

guys what is the best setup of a 30% plane. Which failsafe regulator is better the MPI miracle switch MK2 of Formeco sahara with fail safe switch. MPI is cheaper than Formeco.

Voltage regulator = Fromeco Sahara with heavy duty wires and Deans on and Deans out.

On/off switch = Fromeco Wolverine (for 2 rx batteries) or Badger (for 1 rx battery) with heavy duty wires and Deans in and Deans out.

Note: You generally get what you pay for.

The miracle switch is fine for ignition but Fromeco for the flight batteries for sure.

I'd stay away from MPI. I have had issues, with the backs falling out, Thats my two cents. Cheaper is correct!

Re: MPI miracle switch or formeco sahara

Also look at smart-fly's SuperReg and turboReg. For a 50cc plane the super is more than enough. Nice thing about it is it's a dual regulator with battshare capability and built-in failsafe switch circuitry. All you need is the $20 switch/charge package.
