I am going to start my first cam this weekend, and wanted to make sure that the modifications to the walmart "mainstays" sensor are the same as to the ms20's. My walmart is out of ms20's and I am trying to go low buck with my first cam just in case I screw something up. Any suggestions/reccomendations for a first timer would be appreciated.Thanks in advance! Scott

Is is  this relay 10-Amp SPDT Mini Relay. This replay only draws 9vdc. It looks just like the relay I have to remove

Thank you swampfoot. I picked up a "mainstays"  at walmart. Going to give one of them a try. They are almost 16 bucks cheaper then the radio shack. I am going to build another cam. I have a friend who wants one. do you use a desoldering iron when you work on them. Any tips would be of a great help

I JUST USE A 25 WATT SOLDERING IRON AND DESOLDERING "BRAID" FROM RADIO SHACK AND IT DOES GREAT. YOU JUST LAY THE BRAID OVER THE PLACE YOU WANT DESOLDERED AND THEN PLACE THE HOT IRON ON THE BRAID AND IT WILL SUCK UP THE SOLDER.

I picked up the relay. I am going to get a desoldering braid or RS 9 buck desoldering iron. The one with the sucker on it. I have an owl on the way going to wire it to that and a 6 volt battery. My other rig shot 8 out of 12 shots will not have film back unit friday for results
