Default who here use the Ko Propo electric switch?

The only downside to this is that it drains your bettery even when its turned off. Does it drain the battery very fast or can you get a few good hours using it without draining your batts?

I'm using this switch on my 710. The only thing i do is disconnect the switch from the battery after the days racing. If you don't do this and are using NiMh batteries it will take to much out of the batteries and reduce there life.

I see other people don't use any switch at all, but I don't like that. In my case i also need to carry some extra weight as the car is under weight.

yah, i used it for a while, and everytime i was done runnin my car, i'd press the off button, and i knew i had a good 1/2 a pack left but when i went to go run it again, it was drained, i never liked it, it just drained my batts, when it was in the off, so i had to either unplug my bat from it, or just get a manual one, and i got a manual one, its a lot better and cheaper. mho

Derek, I have one on my FW05R in LA. It drains your battery in a couple of days but works fine otherwise. I had no problems going through a race day with the switch--i.e. it does not drain the battery so much that you have noticable shorter run time compared to a regular on-off switch.
