yea.. not a fan.. the locking action can be a problem in the retrieve boat.. and its "a hole"
I have heard of a couple sailplane guys did have turn off problems with zepsus switches. Problem turned out to be mounting the switch next to Bluebird brand servos. Seems Bluebird servos have a big voltage spike during operation. Have not heard of any other problems, even so I do try to keep the switch away from servos if I can. I haven't heard of anybody having problems with high current wiring near the switch, such as in high power electrics.I mentioned the magnetic switches to a friend of mine he said a good racer had installed them in all of his boats for a nationals race and had so much trouble with them turning off in the middle of a heat he had switched them all back by the next day.
How deep into the boat do they go (length) looks like they may be to big for the 21 size radio boxes ,or maybe they just look long.I bought these for the boats I am building .
