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!
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?
I want to use this switch with 5 leds for nav lights . Each led is rated up to 3v , and use 2 miliamps each . I use a 4.8v 850 mAh nimh receiver battery to run my servos . I want to use this switch with a separate 4.8v nimh or ni-cd and a ubec if needed to power the leds . Is this possible ? If not can someone tell me how this could be done ?
Sure, you can use this switch to control your LEDs - just make sure that you connect the ground wires if you're using a seperate battery for your LEDs (other than the one that powers the receiver). Hope this helps! :)
