Question

Change dual switch to triple switch ?


Hi,

I have a very cheap RC "Carson LCD 6" - six channels.

Channel #5 has a simple dual-switch (on / off).

I want to change this dual-switch to a triple-switch (off / function 1 / function 2).

The sticks have potentiometers so the idea is to put a resistor to one pin of the switch, so I should have this three switch conditions:

off (no connection)
function 1 (with resistor)
function 2 (connection = no resistance)

Could this idea work?

If yes, witch resistance should do have the resistor?

Not quite so simple, for best answer, suggest question be transferred and asked under:

Ok, can this thread be moved or should I begin a new one in the other forum?
