Review by: Mark Mortimore (Morty)Great Switch
Great switch, I use it on my model yacht saves removing the cover every time. I just glued it under the carbon fibre hatch. I wish the magnet cam in a holder or on a string. I used red heat shrink to make a tube but I still lose it.
Review by: John BakerSwitch for RC steam yacht
Being an early steam yacht it has traditional rigging to secure masts. The pico switch enables me to switch on electronics without removing the rigging.
Super bit of kit

Great small magnetic on off switch that fits nice and works well! Mounted in a small glider.

Review by: Steve RevellGreat Switches
The best way to turn on and off my F3F gliders once on the slope.
The easy single swipe to turn on and the dright LED can be seen through the fiberglass nose cone.
And the 4 second delay to turn off is an extra safety feature against accidental turn off.
Awesome swithch, l have them in all my glider, bought more than 10.... A1+
Review by: Steve RevellRC Glider Power
I have these switches in all of my gliders to ease the issue of power control, l like the easy way they can be mounted in almost any position, remembering to keep them away from the servo’s.
The ease of switching on instantly with just a swipe, but the safety of the “hold for 4 seconds” feature means, no accidental switch off during launches.

A brilliant device, East to fit and use. I have fitted it to a radio controlled oo gauge locomotive. Works a treat
Review by: Richard LilleyPerfect little switch
I've been looking for something like this for a long time. Been using door alarm switches for while but they don't stand up to the current draw for long.
Just installed one of these into my Micro Magic sailboat and it works perfectly so far.
No more rusty switch failures!
Should be more of a boon in my Victoria, since I have to tape that hatch shut, and it is a pita to untape and retape.
I ordered one for each of my 3 sailboats. A bit pricey but no moving parts, should last forever. Delivery to Canada was quick, no complaints, a happy customer.
Review by: Ian HawtinGood replacement or spare.
Bought as a back up due to mine occasionally being faulty. It takes a bit of getting used to but seems to work as it should. I might have found the fault on my old switch and fixed it. More than happy to use this one as a replacement if necessary.
Review by: AnonymousVery neat lightweight switch
Not used in anger yet have only just installed inside a carbon fibre hull but it appears to work very well - you just have to be patient and hold for 3 seconds and not be too hasty to get going. Certainly much better than leaving battery permanently connected or having to remove a hatch covering to disconnect.
Review by: Bob Titosmall light and handy
small light en easy to use. more than happy
Review by: DavidPicoSwitch used on the Elf
I purchased the PicoSwitch with an Elf from HyperFlight.
Excellent service from HyperFlight as it arrived here in Australia in just 5 business days.
This is a great little switch that changes state by passing a magnet near the switch. Flashing light clearly indicates the current state.
Very easy to use and reliable. I did find that it turns on quite easy by just passing the supplied magnet near the switch. Turning off however is a little more tricky and it takes me a few attempts to finally have the power switched off.
Review by: StevePicoSwitch - Magnetic RC On-Off Switch for batter
I tried them today in 2 F3F gliders and they seem to work very well. I like the idea of having to hold the magnet close to the switch for 3 or 4 seconds before it turns off, sure make those accidental swipes harder to make.
