Hardwire a RC 2.4ghz transmitter
Hi, I'm new to this very interesting and helpful forum so HELLO!
I'm currently building a scale model of a hybrid electric vehicle that will utilise a nitro engine and electric motor to demonstrate how a Toyota Prius (dont laugh) hybrid system works. Purely for demonstration purposes!!! I'm doing this for a University as a side project.
The car will never be used on track or road and will only be sat on a rolling road for students to learn about hybrid systems. I understand that it would be completely useless as an RC car due to weight issues etc.
Anyway..... onto my question. I want the students to be able to "dial-in" a certain amount of throttle instead of using a trigger, as is on the stock transmitter, to see how the vehicle reacts.
Is it possible to hardwire a controller or is there such thing as a transmitter with a rotary potentiometer instead of a stick or trigger? Has anybody ever done this?
By the way I'm very new to the world of RC vehicles but I like what I see so far!!! I bought a used Schumacher fusion 28 Turbo, its very noisy and fast :-)
So excuse any noobie questions I might post!
Thanks for looking!
