I want to convert my launch controller to a relay system. I currently
have a 7Ahr sealed lead acid battery that sits at the launch button end
of the system. I want to put the battery and realy at the pad end. I
have a few questions for the hive:
1. Is it OK to use the same battery power to fire off the relay and do
the launching or do I need a separate battery to fire the relay? I
intend to start doing clusters (initially 3x 18mm estes motors only) so
there will be multiple ignitors to deal with.
2. I know it's been posted before but is the prefered ignitor clip the
3A. Are banana plugs (15 amp rating) ok for hooking up ignitor wires to
a relay box?
3B. Are dual stackable banana plugs (also 15 amp rating) ok for hooking
up clip whips for clusters?
4. What is a good inexpensive automotive relay to use for a launch
controller when you want to cluster estes motors?
