I will add a safety note. Years ago when "Giant Scale" started, it was decided that an engine cutoff switch should be on the outside of the airplane for emergency use. In our new high tech world I see no evidence that this is still not a good idea.

So I wire a switch in the power feed (clearly marked and positioned near the engine) to the ignition always!
