Default on/off switch via Aux channel for lights

does anyone make a simple controller that will allow me to switch power to things (such as a light controller) on and off from an aux channel?

Thanks gents.

Do you mean from your radio? If so then HeyOk makes light controllers you can turn on and off from a channel on your controller.

My link isn't "old". It is for the main China warehouse for Hobbyking.

The link I provided shows all of the warehouses including the International Warehouse. Your link shows "Backorder" that has been crossed out which, for HobbyKing, typically means it's never going to be restocked under that part number.

I've really been thinking of picking up some of these. Can use a pair and make a winch controller for a little over $20 too.

I use an old servo board. Just replace the trim pot with a couple of resistors (don't remember the specs on them).
