    At least I think it is simple...

    I have 2 12v wingtip lights that I need to be able to control with
    one switch and one wire running through a wing in an airplane.
    This is for just one wing. That's the gist of it.

    I just bought piggyback strobes for the wingtips, but I don't want to
    have them on all the time that I have the navigation lights on.

    I was thinking of a relay that has a remote control, or has a signal
    run through the positive wire or could possibly have a low & high
    setting and if we send 12 volts to the relay it trips, but it won't
    trip at say 10 volts.

    Also was thinking about if I turn the switch on once just the light
    comes on. Flip the switch off & on again in under 2 seconds and the
    lights & strobes come on. Leave the switch off & everything turns off.

    I was thinking about relays with a capacitor to keep the line live for
    2 seconds to be able to flip another relay... but now I am confusing
    myself again.

    Any Ideas???

    Seems like it should not be too difficult.
    Thanks so much for any advise!!!
