I've finally got around to building my Hyperfire, and I'm having trouble fitting in two 16 amp switches, so I'm considering just using two of my old 10 amp switches. Will this work, or should I be safe, and try to fit the 16 amp switches in.


I'm using two Meishel 2.0 motors, and the stock pusher motor with an OFP cage, and probably this Lipo. https://www.etsy.com...p_home_active_8


While I'm asking for advice should I hunt around for a battery with a higher C?


If anyone has any suggestions, or advice It will be appreciated, Thanks!

This setup should be perfectly fine. I usually use these switches. They've worked for way more demanding circumstances than yours, and they are pretty compact. I watch Out of Darts' channel sometime too, but I wouldn't buy marked up batteries from him on Etsy. Here's the same battery but cheaper from hobby king. Just in case you're buying your Meishel motors from him as well. Here they are for a lower price at containment crew. The OFP cages on his Etsy seem to be the going price so that's probably fine. Your battery should be able to provide more than enough current for these motors.
