I'm trying to connect a couple of LED strips to my quad multirotor (3DRobotics). The LED strips can take up to 12V input.
The specifics for the R/C Switch says max. 5V input. I have read the wiring diagram that comes with the R/C switch, but that didn't help too much. Is it so that I should connect the 3-wire connector to my receiver to provide it also with 5V power?
In that case, which socket/channel should I use on my receiver? I have the GR-24 connected to my APM thru PPM, using socket/channel 8 on the receiver.
And how do I set the appropriate control on my Graupner MX-20 transmitter? I want to use my 2 position switch SW2. How do I get this switch to control the R/C switch?
Is it as easy as I think: Connect the R/C switch to socket/channel 1 on my receiver, and then assign the SW2 to channel 1?
As you probably guessed already, I'm a total newbie to this R/C hobby. I would rather ask a couple of questions (as simple as they may seem), than blowing up my APM or destroying my Lipo-battery or something else.
