Tips & Tricks: Keeping The Arm Safe Close [July 2012]

Jun 01, 2012 1 Comment by

Keeping The Arm Safe Close: I am a big fan of the Arm Safe from Sharp RC.  I used waxed nylon thread to overcome my problem of leaving the arming plug at home.  I make the attachment using a square knot and securing it to the arming plug, reinforcing it with a couple of drops of thin CA.  The other end wraps around one of the screws securing the other metal ring to the plastic base of the body.  Now it is always present for duty when I go to fly.
