Rugged ribber requres some RC help
does anybody have much experience of model rc eqipment?
Our tug and barge has a system ( and what a bag of worms it is) that operates the hopper doors remotely using some futuba kit. The installation of the system is awful and the design seems inelegant to me.
so some questions for you
1 the reciever works a servo which turns around a servo horn and trips a microswitch which then trips a relay which then supplies 12 volts to the feed.
Can i drive the relay direct from the TX or does somebody make a relay that replaces the servo by plugging direct to the TX?
secondly does any body know if I can charge up the RX battery from a solar charger ( I think it runs at 6 volts)
don't forget the thing normly bobs around about 50 yards behind the tug so I want it to be as self replenishing as possible
when I grow up I wanna be Tony Davis
