Default RCEXL OPTO KILLSWITCH ON ZENOAH G26EI

Gentlement, I have a situation- situation is i am trying hookup an rcexl killswitch to a Zenoah G26ei ignition module, I took some photos and made a diagram to illustrate what I have done that is not working- I used a Y-harness to couple wire(sensor) from engine with sensor wire from ign moduleplug that harness into out from Rcexl unit- then another Y-harness coupling battery wire from Ign module and output from switch harness into the inon the rxexl unit, when I fire up engine and flip gear switch (CH5) ON TX The LEDremain on and engine still run- this setup won't cut power to ignition. What am I doing wrong here, I this Rcexl unit on a CRRC 26 ENGINE and it worked fine, the Zenoah igniton is whipping me mentally. Here are some photos of what I am working with or what I've done so far:

What you do is this: Plug the kill switch IN port to the ignition battery, the kill switch OUT port to the ignition BATTERY port. Plug the RECIEVER port on the Kill switch into your reciever. Your setup with all your y-harnasses and whatnot makes no sense to me. All your kill switch does is cuts off power to the ignition module killing the engine, nothing else. Its an electronic switch.

Take the yellow "Y" out. According to your schematic the ignition still has a path to the battery rebardless of what the kill circuit is doing.
