Default On / Off Switch

just talked to Redcat Racing because my son broke his on / off switch. The only direct replacement part is the entire HobbyWing Brushless speed controller for $98...which is crazy stupid. Anyone have any experience replacing a simple on/off switch? Thanks JAM

You can do a general web search for rocker switch and replace it for about $6 shipped. You can also go to a local store and get it cheaper if you have a tech type store. The only problem would be finding one that will mount easily.

Any switch will do. Just solder the 2 leads to it. I broke the switch on my Lightning and just unplug the battery, though.

Like above any switch will work, mounting is another story.

I have in the past simply twisted the wires together until I could get a replacement.
