Mini-HowTo
I made a Servo as a Power Switch using a 5v Relay: my how-to guide with video + pics!

Servo as a Power Switch (0 min 11 sec)


The how to guide is on my homepage - http://rcgearing.com/servoswitch.html

Please PM me your own How to Guide and I will unlock this post so that you can post it here.

If you have a question, please PM me! I put a lot of hours into making this video.

Hello. I tried making an rc switch with a servo to no avail. i posted a response to that thread with a pic of what i did. here it is again with my original post. any ideas? thanks!



Great work! You are almost there! Just have the black receiver be

a) pluged into the receiver on one end
b) split between the relay and the servo on the other end! Black wire is connected like the letter Y.


........................._______Relay Coil Prong #2
...........----------_______Servo
Receiver----------Servo
...........----------Servo

All three wires (Black, Red, White) have to be connected to the receiver as well as the servo.
