Diy remote for lucky duck

4 posts in this topic

I saw some videos online of people just buying 6v remotes off hsolist for their mojos for $15...So I bought one for my lucky duck, but it has 4 wires 2 red and 2 black. All the youtube videos I'm seeing for the lucky duck DIY have a red,black and 2 yellows wires. Do I need to order the different remote or do I just need to wire this one differently...I guess I figured if it worked on the mojos it would work on Lucky ducks...Thanks for any help....

If I had to guess, the factory receiver has a diode, hence the 3 different colors. A diode basically is like a stop sign and only allows one polarity (positive or negative, depending on what kind of diode it is) to flow through. Let's say it's a positive diode. Black is always your ground, your reciever will run off negative polarity (red), and your motor will run off positive polarity (yellow). Again, I have a pretty elementary understanding of electrical and that's just a guess, but maybe someone on here with more electrical knowledge than I have can answer that more definitively

two wires are for the relay coil, and two wires are for the relay contact.  What model relay did you buy?  I could probably find the wiring diagram for you.  If there is a 5th wire it's an antenna wire for the transmitter.

I'm on my third brand of "hsolist" relays for in my mojos, finally found a brand that works below 45 degrees and farther than 10 feet away.  Say what you want about the cost of factory remotes, but I have 4 mojos with factory remotes and they outperform the 4 hsolist relays I have installed in my other 4 spinners in regards to distance.  I do finally have all the 3rd party remote relays programmed to the same transmitter now, so only need to hang 2 transmitters off my lanyard, or 3 if I have the rotary machines up as well.

This is what it looks like it's from 12v monster...I'm not sure what the exact model # is.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
