Micro jack switch?

Anyone know the part number for the micro switch jack parts from Mouser??? Doesn't have to be from Mouser if there is another supplier, I've just done business with Mouser.

Here's a picture of a large switch jack and plug, but I need one for a HLG. I'd like to have one with the charger included (three pronged).

I just need the parts, I can do the wiring myself.

Thanx for any help.

You will really like them. Tie a ribbon on the jack. You really have to have your head where the sun does not shine to launch with the ribbon hanging in your face. No more forgotten on switch

I have had experience with them in the past, and really liked them. I have an Opus V DS that you can't get to the switch without taking the wing off, and it creates a pain. Not wanting to put a switch on the outside, knowing how to make these myself is fantastic.

I HAVE NEVER launched a plane with no power to the Rx How could you suggest that?

Just make sure they have a good contact and can handle the amps.

Ah yes, I am building the large version, and I don't think my servos draw 60 watts (5Ax12V) even at 140+mph DS speeds. Since I also fly electrics, soldering is something that I can do!

Oh yea guys, I already have them on my Gental Lady and Bird Of Time, but they are the large size. I needed micro size for a home brew HLG I'm building. Nothing like them. easy to charge, never left a switch on the off position on any of my planes again after using them. I'm a believer.

Is there any reason you shouldn't/couldn't use a 2.1mm DC jack instead of a 2.5mm?

Damn scroll wheel. Totally missed that. Wish I had seen it prior to placing my order with AllElectronics.com yesterday. I would have gotten it in addition to the bits for my hot wire power supply. Thanks for the info though. I'll get it next time round.
