Anyone who has flown an electric-powered model knows the risks and dangers associated with an unexpected motor start. On most models, once the flight battery has been connected, the ESC is armed and the motor is ready to turn at the slightlest bump of the throttle stick. This can create a dangerous situation with any model, especially in those situations where a hatch, cover, or canopy must be secured over the battery before the model can be flown. Arming Plugs reduce the chance of an unexpected motor start, and the serious injury that can result from it, by preventing the battery circuit from being completed until the arming plug has been inserted. By locating the connector for the arming plug in a convenient place on the outside of the model, the Arming Plug and Harness makes it possible to make the final connection of the flight battery the last thing you do before you taxi onto the runway. These Arming Plugs and Harnesses are available in stock with 5 different connectors to accomodate various ESCs and batteries, and can be customized with others on request. Check the Product Details at right for more information.
If you'd like something that provides even more protection against unexpected motor starts, and that can eliminate the need for an Arming Plug altogether, please consider our Patented SafeStart system available here.
