PowerBox Smoke pump Standard With Accessories 8010 comes out of standby when Rx is off

  • I have a new PowerBox Smoke pump Standard With Accessories 8010 which is powered by a separate 2S LiFe battery. The unit pumps Ok, but after switching off Rx power, a few minutes later the red/green LEDs on the pump start flashing and keep flashing. If I turn the Rx on again, the pump LED goes solid green, and when I switch the Rx off the LEDs go off too, but a few minutes later the pump led goes back to flashing red/green. I am using a Futaba R7014 Rx with a 2S LiFe battery and a Futaba electronic switch.

    What is going on here please?

  • Hello,


    the Pump goes into a low current standby. When power comes form the RX it wakes up again. Just to take out the electronic switch and receiver: Pull out the RX wire to the receiver, keep the LiFe battery connected.

    Now if the LED remains off, your electronic switch doesn´t work good
