Powering Arduino Uno On/Off with Electronic Switch

Hey everyone,

I would like to power my Arduino on/off remotely using a transmitter so the Arduino can run the sketch I have implemented from a distance.

Has anyone used a turnigy receiver controlled switch? Or any other type of receiver controlled switch for that matter?

Thanks for your time everyone.

I've never done anything like that, but obviously the receiver has to be independent of the Arduino and constantly powered-on or else it can't receive a "turn-on" message. ;)

If you dont need that long range you could use one of these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/DC-12V-2CH-Channel-Wireless-RF-Remote-Control-Switch-Transmitter-Receiver-New-/141386185052?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item20eb45f95c

Your right, the receiver would have its own power source. But if I could run an electronic switch from the receiver to the Vin of the 'Duino to power it by a switch of the transmitter, that would be awesome.

I already have a receiver and transmitter
