|If you move the stick, or
turn the button at your transmitter, the relay of the
elektronic switch turnes on or off. With the relay-switch

Whith the jumper X4 you can choose the movementdirektion. A LED shows that the relay is switched on. I use special bright LED´s for outdoor use.
At the contacts of the relay (COM und NO) you have to solder two wires to the triggerswitch of the camera.
The circuit bord of the electronic switch01 is only sized 25 x 38 mm and has to mountig drills at the edges.
