Plug it into your receiver and you instantly have an on/off switch controlled by any channel on your radio.
The Turnigy switch will complete a circuit when the radio channel passes 50%. Connect it to your flap or gear channel for an instant on/off switch! Great for custom lighting, sound or effects projects, remote glow igniters, remote starter motors or even custom smoke machines. The possibilities are endless!
additionally, it appears that the BEC is upstream of the receiver and switch but NOT for the LOAD (lights). If this is true, why doesn't the lights/load need a BEC or does the on/off switch regulate that?
according to the drawing, there are two power sources going into the receiver switch, one from the receiver (plugged into aux channel) and one from the battery (red bare wire from battery). which powers the lights and which powers the on-off switch function?( I know the third wire from the receiver is the wire that enables the remote switching)
Ok I've installed this switch to control 4 strands of 12V LED lights and the landing light. All works great but I have all jumped pins in for alternating light, which it does when I start up, and depending on the switch position the LEDs come on when sync'ed with the radio.
Question is* I read that when in failsafe mode the lights should revert back to flashing when radio comms is lost with the TX'er, Doesn't happen - lights stay on in the last configured position just prior to turning of the radio. What do I need to do to have the lights flash when the radio signal is no longer sensed from the transmitter.
I plan on purchasing the Turnigy switch and use it to turn on/off my LEDs for night flying. I fly my plane with a single 3S 11.1V Lipo. Can I just connect and power the LEDs directly from this Lipo ? or do need to have some sort of voltage reducer?
