Negy,


Imagine what would happen if the battery is drained by the ignition system....
If a separate on-board radio battery still has some juice in it, you could make a dead-stick landing, but if it is the same battery???

I would strongly advise against it.


Even electric power models that do use a single power source, have a BEC that reduces, or cuts off engine power, but retains control of the model...

Friend,
I do not recommend you. You can have prolem with interferencies and You have to be sure you have electr. energy for reciever for safe landing.
Must be curful

what about a limiting switch where by the power on the ignignition side is reduced or stoped would be a good option or a indication of lack of remaining power so a to at least do a dead stick landing
