Some guys at the field that have a choke servo use it to kill the engine, not sure if that is a good idea or not.
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?
