    Right, I assume then they mean something like this (http://www.forge-electronics.co.uk/i...l-10a-rc-relay) but without knowing the context (or the wiring diagram), I wouldn't like to commit to anything.

    I've used a single variant of this before on early versions of The Honey Badger 1.0 to power the flail motor but the ones I was using had a horrible habit of sticking open - probably too high a amperage for the switch.

    You can upload them directly here. Clicking on the add a image button (third from the right when quick replying) and then select the "From Computer" option. Make sure the image isn't too big though (I tend to resize mine to 900x675).

    A dual RC relay is a device with two outputs that connects to a single channel.

    When the transmitter stick is dead center, neither relay is active.

    Moving up activates one, moving down activates the other.

    My old supply for these is discontinued, so youd have to ask Team Nuts if they can make you one as i dont know any other source ive personally tested.
