I use them in several of my models very successfully and wouldn't use anything else now.

Same as Flack, have used them in several models. no problems once you get used
to the stick movement on the transmitter, ideal for lower power switching lights/ radar etc.
Relays not rated as high as the Twin Switcher.

As stated above,
use them latching for lights, radar etc.
or non latching, horn, whistle,
Or a combination of both on the same switcher

Sorry but this is incorrect. P44 Twin Relay Switch can be either latching or non-latching; P62 Quadswitch is latching only on all four relays. I know because I make 'em.
