Boolean21's Poor man's wireless trailer lights for 1/14 scale Tamiya Flatbed Semi Trailer

Post by boolean21 on Wed 2 Apr 2014 - 18:09

Need some lights for the semi trailer....

So... finally manage to find time to fix it up....



Difficulty Level: 0 (easy! anyone can do it!) Very Happy

Items used
------------
1. Light kit with signal lamps - i used Hobbyking ones, but any light kit will work...
2. Extra receiver for on/ off trailer lights control as well as signal lamps, brake lamps, reverse lamps to work
3. Receiver controlled BEC - from HobbyKing, allows control of a switched power output via a spare channel
4. extra bits of wires...
5. Blu-tack - i used black ones.... i used it to hold the light buckets in position... i don't like permanent fixtures! Very Happy
6. Light buckets / LED holders / etc - for the reverse lights... i used the spare ones from Axial kits...
7. switch - to switch off the receiver when not in use as i tapped the supply from the same AA batteries on the trailer


How it works?
--------------
Simple, channel 1 and 2 of the additional receiver is input to the light unit for the signal lamps, reverse lamps and brake lamps functions....

Receiver controlled BEC is to supply the input voltage to the light unit, so that when the trailer is not in use, we can switch it off using a spare channel on the radio....

That's it... Smile



Some photos of the build....


The light kit from HobbyKing



Receiver controlled BEC



Installed the LED and mocked up the light buckets from Axial kits...
but  didn't use these light buckets in the end... used the round ones instead...



DIY-ed a bracket to hold the wires in place....
simply cut up a piece of styrene and drilled 2 holes for the bolts....



works well... simple... Very Happy



zip-tied the cables, taped the light unit, bec, receiver to the underside of the trailer....
and taped the power switch for the receiver to the side of the ladder frame....



these won't be really visible unless you go take a shot of the trailer from below... Very Happy



the back view.... used these axial light buckets instead...



done!

will try to do up a video of the light kit in action... Smile

thanks for looking!

sorry bro... no idea about futaba T8J....
for the wireless lights, as long as you radio can pair to 2 receivers then it'll work...
