It's the rookie again !!! Can anyone please run through how to fit a Seuthe Smoke Generator please ? I want it to have it's own switch. I am going to be running my Puffer with an electric motor through a speed controller off of a 6V lead battery. Does it have to have it's own separate battery or can I run it off the system ? Help will be appreciated !!!😱

Hi Ballast
The unit needs to be mounted vertically inside or under the smoke stack, with access to allow you to top up the smoke fluid into the unit.
Current draw is about 2-3 amps so you will either need a relay/microswitch driven by a servo or electronic switch capable of switching 3 amps to switch it on or off. You will need a spare channel on your Rx to operate, preferably one controlled by a switch on the tx.
You can use the main battery but it will reduce your running time because of the high current. You will need a 6v unit if you wish to use your existing battery.

Live long and prosper
