Default a reciver without servos?

With all these R/C models it seems that every thing is done by servos that are plugged into the receiver, I just need a receiver that controls switches, variable resisters, and stuff like that. Just like in little R/c toy cars, Ive never seen any servos in those. I could probably mod a receiver to do that but for that money I don't want to risk it.

um, what are you trying to do? A receiver can't just control a variable resistor or a switch. those need a mechanical action. the receiver just turns the radio waves into an electrical pulse which then the servo converts to a mechanical force. let us know your project and maybe we can help??

There are relays that plug into the servo sockets available. Ask the scale guys, they use them. I think Servo City has some listed under their robotics section.

what im building is a ridged/semi-ridged (havent desided yet) airship out of old components, most of which I took out of a couple battlebot wanna-be toys I got from a garage sale. the only problem is that they used IR signels for control. I basicly need to control voltages to moters.

Im checking out that site now.

after serching a while Ive fould that what I need is a Pulse Width to Voltage Converter. I need it control mutiblle things and at variable speeds though.

you can get an RC car or airplane electronic speed control for the electric planes and cars. they are variable speed controls that connect to the receiver and control power to a motor from a battery pack. variable and reversible (cars are reversible)

Those things are expenive I think I might just goto wal-martor some garage sales and pick up a small cheap R/C car that does the same thing and use the parts, or is there a good reason these things cost so much?
