Is there a way to remotely / electronically activate a piston valve? I haven't read much into piston valves yet but I'll check them out.

there is a way to do that.

or you could have a remote control, servo actuated blowgun directly onto a sprinkler or QEV. that would be simple as hell aswell. just hook the servo arm up to the trigger.

i have old rc systems that i make stuff out of and use servos to move switches and things. (remote control 'cars' that have 10 inch steel blades on them) :shock: lol. used to anyway havnt had a tinker with that stuff for a while.

edit: :idea: a remote control car modded with a few mini's on it :idea: :twisted: :twisted:
