Thanks for the info crowndog. Can you please tell me how did you build the remote control? Do you have any photos? Thanks
Sorry haven't checked in awhile. I purchased online a twelve switch infrared remote control kit. I wired the individual switches on the receiver board to the remote jack. I think I found the connector at Mouser Electronics. The kit comes with a hand held remote. Oh and I purchased a plastic hobby box from Mouser as well with a red translucent plastic front insert to allow the infrared signals to get to the ir diode on the receiver board. Total cost less then $50.
