    With minimum electrical pieces used. im trying to ad a solenoid to a already made circuit board OR!!. compile a mini circuit i can control selonid with.

    push button to a wireless popper solenoid. i have radio transmitting crystals. From xmod rc cars

    how do i make this work wirelessly?

    Your needs are unclear. What exactly are you trying to do?

    "compile a mini circuit i can control selonid with."

    Huh?

    I'm Dyslexic sorry lol.

    I'm trying to control a solenoid with a wireless transeiver, with a wireless button receiver.

    Oh, OK, thanks for making it crystal clear. The RC experts here I'm sure can give you a simple solution.

    I think they'll want to know how much current (at what voltage) is required to trip the solenoid. By solenoid, do you mean relay, to control an electrical circuit, or are you needing the mechanical action of a solenoid?

    well i want to ad a button to my remote which uses 9v.

    then i want the solenoid to operate on the car which uses 9.6v, when i press the little button on the remote.

    prolly wont be possible to wire it in to the diagram so next option would be making a small wireless transmitting device/ciruit.

    I suggest starting a new thread titled something like "Help adding solenoid control to RC Car" or something like that, to catch the attention of the RC experts around here. Make it clear that you need either an add-on to the existing controls, or a completely separate circuit with Tx and Rx, sharing only the existing power sources and enclosures. Of course if I've gotten anything wrong, correct it.
