    CC on off switch

    I seem to be having problems with the on off switch from my MMP is there a way to eliminate it? Thinking just cut it out and solder the 2 wires together or somehow remove it from the inside. Last ? do you think ill void the warranty on it if i do anything to it.

    i dont know about the warranty on the switch but you can call castle and find out. i know you can cut the fan off without voiding the warranty i called and thats what the guy told me. you can cut the switch off and solder the wires together but you will want to turn your tx on before plugging in the batt.

    Removing the switch does not void the warranty

    Yea i think i might solder them together. I have no problem having to turn on the tx prior to plugging it in. I could of sworn i saw on youtube a kid who removed the switch and wires all together but i could be wrong.

    That is one of the biggest complaints about Castle ESC`s is there switch and
    Ive had that problem with 2 myself. It is safe to remove it and solder the wires together. If you call the support line they will tell you it is ok to do that with out voiding the warranty.

    I haven't done that to any of mine. I just leave the switch turned on all the time so it doesn't have a chance to fail.

    If you are going through the trouble of removing the existing switch just connect the wires together

    You dont need a switch, it serves no purpose
