|" Before you go modding a gun-type transmitter,
show how to decently control a loco forwards and backwards with that trigger.
A short video to prove would be helpful, too."
Thanks for your encouragement.
I thought it would be nice to Post some pix. of a few folks 'creative' options, from the amazing world of 3D-printing.
I am very vaguely considering modding a 'FlySky' GT2E or 'FlySky' GT2B Transmitter ...
... but my feeling is, that the somewhat limited 'throw-angle' of both 'triggers' & 'sticks' ...
... could be VASTLY improved upon in a decent D.I.Y. design.
My inspiration would be from the stalwart 'Tri-ang' P-42 Circuit Control Unit, from the swingin' '60s !
In fact I have a spare BURNT OUT one, stashed in my hoard of thrashed & trashed slotcar throttles.
Still in SUPERB condition ... outside at least !
The vintage vanguard of very versatile Voltage variation.
Once I've cleaned out all the loose asbestos from inside the BURNT OUT one ... It should be perfectly safe to experiment with !
Talking of which, those low-Ohm 'Parma' Pro. slotcar throttles really are THE $4!7 when it comes to SPEED and CONTROL ... F1 Baby !
The awesome design of the 'Tri-ang' P-42 phenolic-resin enclosure was WAY ahead of it's time ...
... I don't think I've yet seen anything 3D-printed, or otherwise, which can even touch it for shear STYLE !
BUILT TO LAST !
( unless you leave a screwdriver across the rails by mistake of course )
P.S. Sorry, I don't Post videos ... I'm more of a traditional 'stills' type o' guy myself.
