    Self canceling turn signals

    Here's my next project. I got a self cancelling turn signal module
    that I'll attach to a momentary switch on the dash. Should be an easy
    wiring job. A fast flip will keep them on for 7 seconds, holding it 2
    second will keep them on for 20 seconds. and 4 switch will keep them
    on for 40 seconds. So far spent $80 I see the uk option cost $250 for some reason

    I have the UK version sitting in a drawer. It became less and less of a priority as I learned more and more to self apply the "off" button.

    that looks nothing like me

    I got it installed tonight after about 30 minutes of work. works like a charm. I can provide a wiring diagram if someone wants to do the same thing to bypass the built in signal flasher. It does not make a clicking sound anymore though.

    I know, you're helicopter blades are made of carbon fiber.

    Ithought it was a cool picture though, most pictures of gogo are the happy cartoon, this guy looks like a mad scientist, LOL

    If you hold it down for a few seconds does it flash longer?

    quick flip is 7 seconds, holding it 2 second will keep them on for 20 seconds. and 4 seconds switch will keep them
    on for 40 seconds. that's why I used the self centering switch

    Another switch cancels

    The module is actually pretty small 1/2 the size of a credit card. (my steering shaft has impetigo apparently)


    Here is my wiring schematic

    That doesn't look all that bad. And a hell of a lot cheaper. Is it waterproof?
