A bit more info req ,because you normally switch the power supply of to the receiver from the BEC and you only ever have ONE BEC in use at Any one time.so if its your two Mtronics you need to remove one of the red wires from the receiver plug, just get a pin lift the flap and bend back and put a bit of tape on so it can be replaced if needed in the future, it,s safer than just not switching one on.

the one you remove the wire from will not req a switch just tape it up in the off position.
