Default Anyone try the Dymond "Remove Before Flight" radio switch?

Good Day All
I have purchased some of the Dymond "Remove Before Flight" radio switches, but have not flown them in an airplane yet. I was wondering if anybody on the Forum had used them, and if so, any negative results? The switch is basically a shorting jack and plug, that when the plug is removed, turns the switch on, and when the mini plug is plugged back into the jack, turns the rx off, but then allows charging through the charge wire.
Thanks in advance for any replies.

I have not personally used them, but a friend at the field uses them in his gliders. Haven't heard anything bad about them. The only thing I wondered about was whether exhaust, fuel, etc would get inside the plug while in flight. Different mounting options would cure that.
