Is it safe to use one battery? Not being sarcastic just dont know. Seems most people use two batteries. With the IBEC I could use one 2100 LIFE pack and be done?

If it was me, I'd start looking for problems elsewhere before I ditched the smart fly ignition kill. Its way to valuable and frankly not likely to be the cause of the dead stick. Have you gone over your fuel system and checked for leaks, kinks, etc?

I would ditch the smartfly optical kill. I had one go bad on my 104. Use a ibec it has a kill built into it.
