    Sep 8, 2010, 10:59 AM - Rangefinder LED activation when lowered? #1

    My stalk will have a RC servo to lower up and down. I want the LED's in the rangefinder to activate when it is in the lowered position. Anyone have any ideas to how I would go about doing this?

    The lights need to be on a tilt switch or a mercury switch. It's been done many times and documented here. Just do a search for rangefinder lights and I'm sure it will come up. You seek mrgr8ness or salamanderking.
