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

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