Is anyone interested in helping me implement a red “Remove Before Flight” strap in place of the safety switch? Or maybe as a redundant safety mechanism to the safety switch? Basically the opposite of a car key.
-“Remove before flight” strap is installed = vehicle is immediately disarmed and set to ‘safe’ state
-"Remove before flight strap is removed = vehicle is set to ‘unsafe’ state and is free to arm
If implemented as a redundant safety, the arming procedure could look like this:
- Remove safety strap
- press safety switch
- arm vehicle
Ive started a thread over in the copter forum:
“Remove before flight” Red strap as safety switch
This could provide a visual safety measure that is immediately identifiable from several feet away as well as a further assurance that the vehicle is safe while working on or near it.
