Default Spektrum DX6 Question

Hey guys.... Is the kill switch for the DX6 needed to prevent the tank from starting back up after being knocked out?

If you are using it for a tamiya tank, then yes you need a pico switch connected to channel 5 of the receiver to distrub the signal going to the rudder channel to shut the tank down remotely. You can also program the fail safe in such a way thatthe pice switch is in the off position when signal is lost or teh TX is turned off thus shutting the tank down.

E;se if you are using it with a DBU2, then you only need to connect the option channel on the DBU2 to channel 6 of the RX (or three way/flap switch channel) to have greater control on the functions of teh HL tank and also to turn off the tank remotely. Do note that the DBU2 will turn off the tank when you turn off teh TX regardless if you use teh option channel.
