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.

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size?   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
