The ArmSafe® Arming Base includes the parts for installing the Base into one RC model. Note that this Kit does NOT include an Arming Plug or wire. The body of the base is made with very tough UV stable black acetal. The user supplies the wire and shrink tubing as required. The base is very compact, it measures only 1.0" diameter x 0.55" deep, making it very easy to install into most RC models. Weight is only 6.3 grams.
The ArmSafe® System was created to improve the safety of electric RC models by giving the user better control of WHEN they energize and de-energize their models. This control can help reduce the risk of propeller strikes due to inadvertent motor starts. ArmSafe® is an effective solution for reducing, not eliminating, the risk of injury around high powered electric models. When ArmSafe® is CORRECTLY USED, the user has better control of WHEN they energize and de-energize their RC model. Uses Deans® Ultra Plug® Pat# 5,533,915. It was developed to have all the features RC modelers want:
1. High Current Rating
2. Small Size
3. Proven Connector Reliability
4. Easy to Install
5. Easy to Use
This Package Includes the following:
1 – Base Bracket - Black
1 – Deans® Female Ultra Plug®
1 – Nut Ring
3 – Mounting Screws (Pan Head 2-56 x 1/2 Lg)
2 – Set Screws (Sharp Point 4-40 x 3/16 Lg)

I have used ArmSafe on RC model aircraft for a couple of years because of safety concerns that I feel are even more important on the multi-rotor models that I am currently building. Having 3 to 6 spinning props makes handling them that much more dangerous. ArmSafe reduces the danger considerably. I would like to see one change, that being to make one leg of the arming plug longer than the other fo act as a guide during insertion.

What a wonderful device. Its not just a safety device; its peace of mind. Available in black or white. Its design is excellent and it always amazes me how well the Dean's plug fits so well into the holder. The two pointed screws only need to contact the Dean's plug to lock it into place. It is an addictive device though, you'll want one on each plane you own capable of drawing major blood !! I mounted a female Deans on my Tx tray to hold my "safety plug".
