    πŸ“ Rx switch

    I found a "Dr. Mad Thrust electronic on/off switch" and it requires no external/separate power. And has the JR plugs on both sides as needed. I will plug it into the 5th port on the receiver and hope my transmitters channel 5 switch works as I plan.🀞😁

    I have a boat that has running lights that are powered thru a reciever port, and are always on. How do I put then on my receivers channel 5 toggle switch? Is there a rx switch that doesn't require a seprate battery? I will like it to still pull from the receivers power thru the BEC

    Here is a new transmitter and receiver that will work for you. It has a few extra channels that you dont need.

    I run sailboats all the time. For the battery pack you can use a 6v hump pack. Here is one with a charger. (you dont need the switch)( I'm in the US so I dont use the UK Ebay site much.

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Modelsport-UK-6v-Receiver-Battery...

    For the transmitter, there are 2 ways to go. 1st is to use the existing older frequency receiver that you have and try to find a compatible transmitter, or just get a new transmitter and receiver combo.

    The Philadelphia Ship Model Society was founded in 1931, making it one of the oldest continuously active ship model clubs in the United States. We are devoted to the building of both radio controlled and static ship models; and to the study of Naval and Maritime history.

    The PSMS meets monthly on the first Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM. Our meetings are held at the Independence Seaport Museum.

    Our monthly meetings include an interesting program on techniques of model building or naval history, and often feature a guest speaker. We enjoy wonderful camaraderie, great programs, and fantastic refreshments!
