Hilantronics RCEKS-5GK Marine Kill Switch


RCEKS-5GK Marine - The 5th Generation of the 2-stroke RC engine kill switch for marine engines. Designed and made in Australia. With new updated firmware and wider operating voltage. It works with most 3 & 4 channel radios. RCEKS-5GK will automatically kill the boat engine if you have a low battery, radio glitch, lose connection, or power loss.
