Airsoft robot fireing system
« on: July 21, 2014, 09:05:50 PM »
I am making an airsoft robot, and I need a way to fire the gun. The gun I got is a cheap crossman because it uses low power and can hold a lot of ammo. It is powered by 4 AA batteries. I am thinking on taking out the batteries and connected to some type of relay boar or something connected to the receiver. But I dot know how to do it. I have a spektrum 5 channel transmitter so I only have the landing gear switch left. I need that to fire the gun. Any ideas???

Remove the trigger and disconnect the 2 wires going to the switch. Attach some longer wires with a momentary push button/switch. Use a servo connected to the RC receiver to push the button. This is the easiest way :)

They make relays directly controlled by the servo signal (no mechanical connection...other than the relay) that might be more reliable.

bdeuell that is a great idea. I was thinking of using a sabertooth but that seams easier and cheaper. It is also smaller.
