ArmSafe® Kit with 12AWG Wire (Max 80 Amps)


Product Description

ArmSafe® Kit with 12AWG wire is rated for 80Amps continuous and 120Amps 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 includes everything for one complete arming system:
1 – Arming Base WHITE
1 – Arming Plug (Male)
1 - Deans Plug (Female)
1 – 18” of High Flex Silicone Wire x 12AWG
1 - Aluminum Ring (Screw holes get threaded with the thread forming screws!)
1 – Piece of Shrink Tubing about 2.25" Long
3 - Pan Head Screws (that are actually TAPTITE® TRILOBULAR™ thread-forming screws)
2 - Set Screws (sharp point)
1 - Allen Wrench (L-Hex Key) 0.050"
* 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. "Must have" product

    Posted by Robert on 2nd May 2018

    I have been using the Armsafe for 5 years, mainly on 2 meter pattern planes. I consider an arming system an essential saftey item, and this product has a proven track record. Easy to install. Keep a spare arming plug in your box!

  2. Best safety device ever.

    Posted by Mike Jones on 6th Mar 2018

    I use the ArmSafe on all my planes. I fly only electric powered aircraft. This device while may take a little time to solder to use, is so simple to keep your planes safe.

  3. Very cool product

    Posted by Captain Bob Yates on 4th Nov 2017

    I'm completely satisfied with every aspect of the purchase. Nice website, easy to order, fast delivery, quality product, good price!

  4. works well

    Posted by Edward Hauser on 26th Jan 2017

    The Deans connectors work much better than normal Deans. I was worried that it would require too much pressure to insert and therefore stress the fuse sides too much. The plugs go in very easily.

  5. Safety for a scale helicopter

    Posted by MIKE DINORA on 20th Dec 2016

    Building a large scale Rc helicopter, added the armsafe arming kit for extra protection against accidental startups. Works great and the kit quality is top notch.

  6. Excellent purchase.

    Very pleased with item and excellent transaction.Delvery time A1++++plus transit information superb.Will use Sharp R/C in the future.

  7. Great product!

    Posted by Dano on 27th May 2016

    these things are GREAT! they won't work in a lot of the foam airplanes (even the optional 1" screws are not long enough for most of the foamies), but are great in balsa + covering models. You can leave your battery hooked up and ready to go without fear of power drain.

  8. Armsafe is designed well. Needs longer mounting screws.

    Posted by Unknown on 12th May 2016

    Good idea, needs minor improvement to install in aircraft. Could provide tool to assist soldering accurately.

    SharpRC comment: Longer screws are available from us, they are 1" long.

  9. Safety First

    Posted by Eldon Woodman on 15th Mar 2016

    I have used the ArmSafe kit on all my planes. Have had no problems with the way they work

  10. Great Safety Feature

    Posted by Steve on 8th Mar 2016

    Great product. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to be safe. Very fast shipping
