Default Smart-fly ignition cutoff question

My question relates to the ignition LED light remaining on after the transmitter is turned off as to simulate loss of signal, I am expecting to see the light go out as an indication that the ignition has been cut...........please help

Hi,
If you have a PCM receiver you MUST program the channel the Ignition Cutoff is on to failsafe to the off position. If you do not do this then the receiver will keep outputting the last position it got from the transmitter, which would be the "ON" command to the Ignition Cutoff. There is no way for the Ignition Cutoff to know you turned off the transmitter unless you program the failsafe on that channel.
Please let me know if you have any more questions.

Thanks Robert for your prompt reply,
As it turns out I figured out just what you have advised, all makes sense now.
My other thought was regarding the possibility of glitches or momentary loss of signal, can and has this caused any problems that you are aware of in respect to unwanted engine shut downs.
Appreciate your advice
Regards James Evers

Hi James,
Your receiver will not go into failsafe for approximately 1 second (depends on how the manufacturer implemented this though) after it looses signal. Also, the Cutoff will delay about 1/2 second after it sees a failsafe before shutting the engine off, so glitches should not be a problem You pretty much have to really loose all contact between transmitter and receiver to shut the engine down. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
