A little help with an infra red remote
I'm trying to build a infra red remote control & receiver to simply switch power on for launching model rockets & other pyrotechnic devices.
So far here is the schematic I've come up with so far. I was wondering if it would work or if there was another component needed.. (sorry I am not good with electronics yet) Like an IC? All that would be needed is for the power to be switched on, no off would be needed.
Please help me out and lets discuss it.
