Im curious what the switch is for with the red safety cover.... damnit I no way could pilot that thing. Id have a case of OCD and start flippen switches like a madman. I do like flippen switches.

The red safety cover has the accessory switch underneath which would energize the guns if equipped, the firing trigger is on the cyclic control stick & easy to accidently hit. There is also a overhead circuit control almost as big as the console.
