    Fun Ideas for 3 channel receiver

    Hey guys, I have an extra 3-channel receiver lying around, and I was thinking of throwing it in my Slash. Does anybody have any ideas for what I could do with the extra channel (i.e headlights)?

    to run headlights, or anything like that, you can only power them off the receiver. if you want to turn them on and off you will need a control unit or a servo that moves a switch.

    You can make a light switch using a micro servo and small roller switch. that works very well.

    I was thinking a fog machine, but a 12 volt mini fogger is tooo spendy. I would rather buy another slash.

    Personally,I think I would make some type of air in take scoop,like the challengers had in the 70s.
    Something just behind the top about 2",then it could open and shut with a servo.
    Make it useful,so it forces air down to the motor,at speeds.
    Bet you would be the first one on the block to have one .
