hoping someone can help answer this, but looks like on the new Proffieboard V2 configurator, the recommended kill switch goes between the Batt+ of battery and proffieboard. In most previous experience I had with kill switches, they are placed on the GND returning to Batt-
so my questions:
1. is there advantage doing the swithc on the Batt+ line?

1. Yes. Since the power for the main blade doesn't travel through BATT+, it reduces the load on the kill switch, and lets you use smaller switches.[*] 2. If they were connected directly to BATT-, that would be true, but the negative side of the neopixels should be connected to LED2/3, where the FETs can cut the power when not in use.
[*] On a V2 board, it is also possible to cut the bridge between BATT- and GND and place the switch there, but AFAIK, there are no advantages to doing it that way over putting it on BATT+.[**] [**] The reason for having a cutable bridge between GND and BATT- is to support compatibility for the 8-pin blade connectors that I've been using in some of my builds.
ARKM: That movie came out way before she was born. IMHO, we can't expect kids to see or even want to see movies that are from before their time.

Rogue 5: I agree. That's become true in the last 10-15 years with the difference today being is it's harder to be exposed to older movies and shows. I grew up on movies and shows that were made before I was born but that's because I had to watch whatever was on TV.

Rogue 5: In this age of streamlined media, it's harder to be exposed to older content no matter how classic it is. But you still hope certain movies like the Keaton Batman can still find a younger audience today. Kind of sad but that's the reality.
