Mojo Wiring/Remote

Postby crawfordw2 » Wed Sep 04, 2013 9:41 am

Has anybody had success wiring 2 or more mojo ducks to the same remote? Mojo says you can not do this but I think you can.
If you have done this please share.

I do not think you can do it with the mojo remotes, as I am sure they have been coded differently (unless you set them to the same code)

If you know how to do simple wiring, you can buy 6v remotes, that have the same code (frequency) I am sure you would be able to wire them to turn off/on at the same time.

I believe there is a tread on here that talks about wiring your own remote. That is what I did. only cost me about $20 for the parts form ebay as well as the shrink wrap for the wires.

Mojo probably says this so they make more $$ on the remotes.

Wired, yes. Wireless, no, well not accurately.

I messaged these people and if you buy 2 or more systems you can send them a message stating you want them all on the same frequency so you can use one remote. I will be trying it myself soo.
If I ask a question, I don't want your opinion. I want facts.
Don't tell me something you think, tell me something you know.
It's easier to say I don't know, than make something up.
Although, being a forum the next guy will know more no matter what.

The above remote won't work. Mojos and Lucky Ducks aren't 12 VDC.

Good point, I just sent another message asking if it will work for 6 volt systems. I run my Mojo's with an r/c 7.2 volt rechargable battery pack. Just changed the connector. I would think it will work and just send whatever voltage through when switched on.. Unless it has to see a certain voltage range to operate. But we'll see when they messsage me back.

The relay coils on those cheap 12v ebay remotes sometimes will pull in on a mojo "6 volt" battery and sometimes they don't. A fully charged mojo battery is usually around 7.2 volts, and it's just enough to pull in those coils from what i've read. A friend of mine ordered 3 of these and only one functioned consistently.

Are they really "the same" ones? There seems to be several available on there after searching. Who makes the ones for Mojo?

Heres another one with 4 remotes.

MSI s*ucks! I am warning you now that those remotes they sell do not work on a Mojo and on Luckys once in awhile. There is another thread somewhere about their remotes. If you make a purchase, best of luck.

This is the 6volt

Works good for me in testing on my baby and regular mojo...I guess I will have to see how it works in the field once we can use them legally. That would be October 12th so it is a ways off!

That remote is not the same that I bought a few years ago from them. Is that the remote you are running right now and it's working find on your Mojos?
