With an Integrated Ground Control unit, select the best type of switch depending on
the objective. A general rule of thumb guide we have developed while developing

Use where direct / quick action is required like changing flight modes without having to toggle through multiple selections as with a rotary (knob) type switch. Also avoids accidentally selecting an incorrect position.
Use where on/off states are required such as arming / disarming. For critical functions, use a covered switch like the one shown below.
3 axis Hall effect Joystick - a must for professional UAV control instead of thumbstick RC controls.
Tengri will be providing a range of switches and controls assembled into switch control panels that are wired with JST-GH connectors for easy assembly.
Switches can be standard or illuminated, open or covered, and come in a variety of colors.
