This is just a saftey reminder something that happend with my shp in 2007 anyone interested look at armedand dangerous thread
I was doing the initial set up and programing the radio stayed up too late wanted to maiden next day. Finished the set up and hit the throttle when putting the radio down to unplug the battery it hopped of the table straight at me full throttle
I don't know if it was a reaction or the fact that I wanted to save my new 3d hobbyshop extra shp from smashing into the wall when it flew off my table it looked like a scene from horror film the plane sprayed blood everywhere. it was an apc e prop and it has a few nicks in it now although I would say the prop faired better than my arm. a Jones witch or taking the prop off during setup would of solved the problem and saved me 6hrs in the ER
lesson learned the hard way
Wow I spent time recently in an ER while setting up my 55". This is another good safety reminder. What does everyone think of using the switch that come with the airboss escs. Do most people use them or not. Is there safety advantages to using them or any disadvantages.
On my 9303 I tried to set a switch linked to a throttle curve. When the switch is flipped the throttle curve is zero. The propeller still will spin up but not even enough to start rolling in some cases . You probably still could get hurt but not nearly as bad.
