ArmSafe® Kit with 14AWG Wire (Max 50 Amps)


Product Description

ArmSafe® Kit with 14AWG wire is rated for 50Amps continuous and 75Amps Burst. BUT these limits are ONLY a guide, see below.*

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. ArmSafe® 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 Kit include everything needed for one complete arming system:

1 – (AS1-B   Arming Base)

1 – (AS1-P   Arming Plug)

1 – 18” of High Flex Silicone Wire x 14AWG

4 – Pieces of Shrink Tubing

1 - Allen Wrench (L-Hex Key) 0.050" - Not Shown in Picture


* The above amperage limits are provided as a guide to help size ArmSafe® for RC models. But this is just a guide, you MUST test all installations at FULL load conditions to make sure that the wire and connectors do not get hot. These amperage guides are rated with 10mph x 80degF air flow for eight minutes, with burst ratings for 5 seconds provided the average current (including the bursts) does not exceed the Max Continuous amperage rating. Many factors will affect the amperage carrying capacity of wire, connectors, and wire harness assemblies such as; wire lengths, air temperature, amount of air movement, quality of the solder joints, wire quality, connector quality, and how long the current flows through the wire.

  1. Great idea and easy to use

    Posted by Peter on 8th Sep 2015

    Very high quality components and easy to install and use. Certainly makes electric flying much safer and should significantly reduce the chance of accidents with the circular saw up front.

  2. Buying more

    Posted by Bob Kelliher on 7th Sep 2015

    Excellent product

  3. Works as advertised......excellent product.

    New to electric flying......need to be very aware of prop being energized by accident. And believe me it can happen!! When prop is installed, approach a/c from behind, never the front. Your 'key' can help to solve that problem!I wish i had known about the lanyard.........not seenwhen orig ordered the ARM SAFE......

  4. The Best Safety feature..

    Posted by Ernie Jones on 14th Apr 2015

    Excellent product, my second one. everyone should use.. Better safe than sorry..

  5. Needs to take up less room

    Posted by richard trebel on 16th Mar 2015

    Nice product. Well made & functional. Only change I would recommend is to make the mounting plate to take up less vertical room. Many foamies this dia. is too large to fit.

    SharpRC response:
    For small foamies some people will trim down the mounting plate to make it smaller and then glue in the mounting plate rather than using the screws and mounting ring.

  6. great idea

    great idea. makes start ups easy.

  7. arm safe

    Posted by steve on 31st Jan 2015

    love it safe way to handle electric planes

  8. Quality Product

    Posted by Unknown on 30th Dec 2014

    While I haven't installed the Arm Safe yet it appears to be a quality product in both form and function. A very complete product.

  9. Great Product

    Posted by Unknown on 29th Sep 2014

    I have been needing to get this for sometime and now I finally got two. Should have gotten them sooner. It is a must have for electric aircraft.

  10. Peace of mind

    Posted by Unknown on 13th Sep 2014

    Delivery was quick. Would have given it 5 stars but, installed on my foamy, the screws are too short. Ended up epoxying it. Works great keeping the motor off and safe while connecting the battery. Good product.
    SharpRC: Please note that for foam installations most times the bases are glued in, and if desired we do carry the longer screws.
