    Okay, I saw this on a thread within the last couple of days, but have been totally unable to find it using the search feature. The thread was about parachute deployment and the fact that this tilt switch had to hit 80 degrees of horizontal before it would deploy. Someone posted a link to purchase three of these "Ball Bearing Switches" (I think) in the discussion. I'm now in the need for two of these for a totally non-related drone project.

    If you posted the link, would you please post it again here???

    Thanks

    Thank You, but not quit the one i was looking for. I did find these, FINALLY!! which will work perfect for the project. As far as that goes, they may also work for recovery chute deployment....hmmm... more to follow on that.

    Thanks for replying dirk!!

    Respectfully,

    Mark

    car bootlid (trunk) lights are sometimes powered by a tilt switch mounted on the lid frame
