remote control

Hi, I'm lookin for a remote controller for the landing gear. The only one I came up with says it only works on 30 amp unit. I have a 50 amp unit. Any help?
Thanks Brent

Check out RFCONTROLSYSTEM.com.... I bought their 30 amp control unit...it works mint. I used an ammeter to measure actual amps while running the gear up and down and I was well below the rated 35 amps circut breaker. I was at 19 amps going down and 22 amps going up.
Just a thought.

Lots of 2 channel remotes on Ebay but the current might be high at 30 amps. i bought several for my railroad signals for less than $10 each

You could always buy the 2 channel lower amp one and have it run 2 relays instead of direct power. Let the relay handle the load and use the less expensive 5 amp unit to drive the relays....
