[DMCForum] Re: Wings aloft kit Qs?

FWIW, I have Toby's door launchers and door locks. The third aux
output of my alarm system disarms the system and unlocks the doors a
couple of seconds before activating the output. So I can hit one
button to unlock & launch.

That said, Toby's door lock actuators are significantly faster than
his launcher actuators. They certainly seem as fast as the original
lock solenoids. I would not be surprised if you could wire them both
up to a single output and have it work just fine. Someone should try
this, and get back to us. Unless Toby's keyless entry system that he
includes with the launchers also has an unlock+delay on an aux output,
in which case there's really no need. (I only bought his launcher base
kit, and integrated it with my existing keyless entry/alarm system, so
I can't answer this one)
