Choppers, man that's the first time I've heard that term, but then if you used the correct term, you'll get some strange responses:D

Good luck with the maiden:)
That switch harness is for use with a dedicated receiver battery, rather than with an ESC/BEC arrangement. Most commonly used with glow/gas engines;)
