Electric switch/servo switch advise needed
I want to hook up a fog horn for the Shelly Foss. I've got the horn coming from Mack Products (thanks Rich).
The horn takes a short (like a switch) to operate. I know i can rig up a convential servo/switch operation, BUT I would prefer to use some sort of an electronic switch, or a relay that is operated by the channel 3 plug of my Futaba 3PL.
I would appreciate your thoughts on where to obtain an electronic switch, a relay, or a servo/switch module that will operate the horn.

If you feel reasonably brave, google for " rc switch circuit ". You should find lots of DIY self build projects. My goggle reported 6.8 million, but I only looked at the first few, which appeared quite feasible.

Based on the subject matter of this thread, I thought some of you might be interested in this. We are attempting to start a new forum under the boats forum. The purpose is to foster development of microcontroller application within the rc boating community and share information, how-to articles, etc. There is more detailed information about our mission in the thread (link below). We need 50 votes in order to get it approved by RC Groups administration. Below is a link to the thread. If you are interested and want to cast an approving vote, simply respond yes in a reply to the thread.
