More receiver switch issues!

One of my RC club mates pulled these two switches out of his new 30 cc gasser, and installed a pair of those Digikey toggle switches I've posted elsewhere in RCGroups.

Naturally, I was curious about these two switches, and checked them out on my SwitchIR meter. One showed 1100 Milli-Ohms, the other ranged from 1500 MilliOhms to OPEN CIRCUIT ON THE SWITCHED RED WIRE!

My RC club member is very lucky that he didn't lose his model.

Please note that this is NOT a repeat of another posting by vollrathd in this thread. These two switches are different units than the other posting.

Thanks for this notification Vollrathd. It serves for me as a reminder to go back to your switch IR meter thread and get motivated to build one.

A recent group of RF link control failures have revealed the need for such a piece of equipment.

Electronic Receiver Switch - another Vollrathd design!

I make these up and use a simple shorting jack or small switch:

Failure mode is on.

Thanks again for this Vollrathd!
