Today after I started the wing ( already warmed up ) the engine just shut right off, just leaving the usual warning lights in the dash. I thought maybe I bumped the kill switch or something. I started the engine back up and three seconds later the same thing, just shut right down ( much like when you put the kickstand down while in gear ). I was thinking maybe one of my switches was going bad or extra sensitive so I tried my kickstand and it doesn't kill the engine until it is almost fully extended. I tried my kill switch and that seems ok also. What other device can shut the engine down? Faulty tip over switch? The rest of the day and many starts later she ran fine but now I am paranoid, I know it's going to happen again, like when I pull out in front of a semi. Any thoughts on this? Thanks.

Maybe your wife has a remote control?

At least not on the 402 in midair.
That's a Cessna 340 with Rolls Royce turbines on it, still experimental, soon to be certified.
