Hello All,

Mike here the new owner of a Losi :) I am looking for some advice and clarification regarding a Kill switch and compatibility.

I have the following transmitter-receiver.
Spektrum® 6200A DSMR 6-Ch AVC Surface RX
DX5 Pro 2021 5-Channel DSMR

I want to install a kill switch for obvious reasons yet when I reached out to Horizon about using their Dynamite 1240 kill switch and its compatibility this was the response I got

"The Kill switch will work with the AVC receiver, it just won't have the failsafe option. To have the kill switch work in failsafe operation then you would need a SR315 or SR515 and would lose AVC "

my question is why would I not want both a kill switch(manual via remote) / failsafe I was under the impression the fail-safe shuts the engine off if the radio link is lost or a power failure occurs. Is there a way to keep both options without losing the AVC technology seems kind of odd to me why its designed in such a way that you lose functionality unless I am misunderstanding something?

As a side note can anyone recommend a way to find places nearby in New Jersey area where I can safely take the RC car out .

Thanks in advance for the help

The killswitch will shut the engine off if there's loss of signal, low battery etc etc. It will be fine, you'll be fully protected

The failsafe is intended for brushless rigs mainly, or with gas rigs without a remote kill switch, but will only protect signal loss. The way they responded is just misleading actually

No problem, and yeah the Dynamite will be fine
It's only the 42xxx 4ch AVC receivers that it doesn't work with. It's fine with the 6ch AVC receivers
