Making a wireless fountain for the backyard?? Answered
I am not trying to be babied or anything just need just basic advice.
I picked up a few books on hobby electronics and want to get into it. For the first project that is not a "book" project I want to know how to use a small DC water pump to power a backyard fountain. In an Ideal world the pump would work from 100m+ away but this might not be a reasonable request.
I purchased a pump and this is it:http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ultra-quiet-DC12V-Mini-Brushless-Motor-Submersible-Water-Pump-3M-240L-H-New-KN-/221703041910?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item339e87f376
I want to plug and play into a transmitter and a receiver.
Will this system work? The way I understand it I need to connect a 9 volt battery to the receiver and I am assuming its soldered in. Then I can run wire to the motor directly.
Am I missing anything here - I know this is very amateur but I am never done electronics stuff before. I will be taking a few community classes in the summer which could prove interesting.
What else do I need to do this?
Is there a plug and play system (receiver / transmitter) that would work easily?
