    Wireless RC smoking jetpack help?

    I'm in the process of building a smoking jetpack like in Gatorfett's tutorial. I'd really like to put some kind of wireless control, so I don't have wires hanging all over the place.

    Anyone know how to go about doing this?

    UPDATE: I figured it out myself. I bought a RC truck from Radio Shack . Took the receiver and transmitter boards out and connected to my Gatorfett setup. Works great. I am now able to turn on the solenoid with a flick of the toggle switch and I don't have wires up my back and arm.

    Isn't it funny how the gear that fans make can be better than the real props used in the film? Especially true with the droid builders I think.

    I'd love to see pics of your setup!

    Gators pack is awesome in real life. When he blows the air out, it's very loud and can startle people who aren't expecting it.

    I was thinking about rigging something up with a fog machine a while back, what is Gator's method?

    The guy is an engineer for a living. He's more apt to be able to figure such things out than most of us.
