Default Question for on/off switch

Hello everyone, I have a question for an on/off switch for yokomo CGM special. I'll be running a Servo Ko propo and Receiver from Ko Propo and also speed control Novak GTX. I was wonder where can I get like a micro on/off switch. I try looking through my local hobby shop the one they sell is huge, was hopping sometimes small. I look through Ko Propo website don't see one for sell there only for gas

I saw some of you guys have some micro on/off switch for your electric car. Posible someone can send me a link to where to buy one that's compatible to what I have please.

If someone have one for sell PM too.

Thanks
Richard

The switch would complete the circuit so the two wires you are left with, either cut them down and solder them together, or just solder the two points on the circuit board together if they are close and you have a steady hand.

beware of doing this. If you change your mind and want to hardwire your batteries, then you would have to put on a new switch.

(I made that mistake with my old GT7)

Clangeddin.

Novak sells mini switch that you should be able to use. http://www.teamnovak.com/buy/ind_buypgs/5600.html

You can also try Radio Shack or similar shops.

Thanks
