If I recall correctly, you'll need a 3 channel system with a Killer Bee.
I'm using the Traxxas TQi 2.4 system. And the Killer Bee does work with the Traxxas 2.4 equipment, you need to disable the Killer Bee glitch protection. Low voltage protection is not affected. I've deliberately ran out of range and the TQi failsafe put the servos at neutral. And found out the hard way that a Hero3 GoPro mounted on the DR and set to WiFi causes glitches that causes the Traxxas system to go to neutral. So there is pretty good glitch protection built into the Traxxas radio. But the main reason to have a remote ignition kill switch is to kill the engine incase of a throttle servo failure. The TQi is a 5 channel system, so the Killer Bee has it's own channel. I have it assigned to the toggle switch on the top of the TX. Hand off the wheel and swipe the top of the TX, engine dies.
TQ systems with the red rocker switch normally used for reverse are 3 channel systems. I tried that channel, but when things get intense I've bumped that switch.
