    Problems solved๐Ÿ‘
    I made 2 request for help, firstly for a spare "94" transfer, which was solved by Rob, and second a spare Turnigy RC switch which was solved by Peter, plus an offer of building a switch from Graham and all the helpful suggestions from others I'm really grateful for all the help that you get on the is forum its really amazing ๐Ÿ˜

    Hi Mike.
    I am sure that I have a couple of new Turnigy switches at home you could use and send me replacements when yours arrive. If you would like, PM me with address and I will send on my return to UK on Wednesday.
    Peter.
    BTW Just found one here in Hungary. I have another at home so let me know.๐Ÿ˜Š

    Mike, forgot to mention that they have a nice blue LED on the board which for some unknown reason the have enclosed in the cover. If you pop the cover open and drill a hole in the appropriate place, it shows up when switched on. (see holes drilled in pic).

    RE I think that may have to be the answer.
    Hi Mike, I've posted these a number of times as suggestions for switches. They are made by GT Power and work very well. I've used them in the HSL for the water pump and led lighting (recently pinched the lighting one to run the smoker and air pump in the same boat, ran out of channels) and also in the ST for the same purpose. These will handle 10A (supposedly)and can be fed with (supposedly) up to 40v and are only switched by the receiver as apposed to powered by it.
    You just have to be careful with any Chinese stuff as their descriptions can be wrong (ie JST plug male and female plugs are often referred to in adverts the wrong way round - easy to do as the plugs are opposite to what nature intended๐Ÿ˜‰. (I think I may have knackered a few of mine not being awake while plugging power leads into the outputs) Cheap enough to buy a few of at a time. They were only around $9 NZ a while back but have jumped to around $12 in a few years (probably some of it because we are now getting whacked with 15% 'grab and snatch tax' since Dec 1 /19)

    I have just purchased another one from RC Echo (pic) who I have dealt with for a number of years and have not let me down yet (you even get an instant receipt/invoice and another when it arrives) which is unusual for a Chinese Co. They have a lot of alternative stuff to HK and the prices are similar. As usual 'yer pays yer money and takes yer chances' - especially from H-King. RC Echo is a Hong Kong Co ( as is H-King,) -so probably a bit more reliable. they also have a PayPal option which is a bit of insurance.

    Hi Doug.
    Nothing wrong with your eyes chum, the switch is made or sold by 'orangeRX' according to the very poor documentation that Mike posted.

    Hi again,
    Found this further down the page Rob posted, looks useful and not so pricey!

    "UPDATE.
    Graham is quite correct.
    Turns out that it does take it's supply from the RX ๐Ÿ˜ฎ"
    That was my take on the 2A switch Rob.
    "Perhaps use the two Turnigy's for the lighting circuits and the Orange one with a relay and separate supply for the pump? "
    Orange one? I must be going colour blind.๐Ÿ™ˆ
    Anyway, I would suggest using the two switches shown by Mike as follows-
    I would use the 10A switch for the pump, which apparently takes 2A max, and the 2A switch for lighting.
    I assume the lighting will be LED chains which will only need a few tens of mA per circuit. The RX battery / BEC will hardly notice that.๐Ÿ˜‰

    I don't see any way to use the 2A switch with a separate load battery without modifying it, difficult, or damaging itโ˜น๏ธ
    The output wires of the 2A switch DO need to be connected with the correct polarity or it would probably destroy the output switching transistor and possibly short circuit โšกthe input supply from the RX, thus maybe killing the whole system.
    ---> 'Dead in the water'๐Ÿ˜ญ Pack your swimming trunks and a beach towel Mike!
    The input and output - wires are common!! The output having a black tracer on the - lead. I.e. you can't wire it like the Turnigy switch.
    That's my 'Chip' Rob, hope it helps you Mike.๐Ÿคž
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    BTW: What I miss in both so called specs is a latching mode. Which is why I like the Action switches. You can set them to latch / unlatch or to only be ON when the TX switch or stick is activated.

    I think all things considered the Orange RX is poorly documented and can't be described as a substitute for the Turnigy product.
    And ยฃ47 for the real thing is taking the p*5" ๐Ÿ˜ฎ but that's supply and demand for you!
