" Why re-invent the wheel? "
It simply MUST be possible to improve them.
Now, elliptical bicycle chainsets ... I never saw THAT one coming !!
Anyway, there's nothing like yet another 'challenge' to clutter up the workbench !
After you modded your Captain Kirk 'Starfleet' Phaser ...
... adding what I think is the 'reversing' switch above the wheel/throttle + 4 C L push-button switches ...
... it looks like the modded controller ... GOT MODDED !
Obviously no input from the 'Starfleet' Gadget Dept. on ^^ this C L lil' baby !
I was thinking of ditching the whole 'Star Trek' design $4!7 ...
... & going for something a bit more like your '80s cellphone design.
Not sure whether to plan for a reversing switch, which my other recent throttle has ...
... or a 'center off' type of throttle, like the 'Tri-ang' P-42.
Helmut, I think I'm right in saying BOTH the above ^^ modded controllers of yours were 12-Volt 8-AA cell powered originally.
What is your '80s cellphone modded one powered by ?
Those 12-Volt Transmitters must drop a TON of Volts ...
... the microchips inside, are gonna be 5-Volt, or on newer stuff 3.3-Volt for sure.
Are your modded Transmitters 'power hungry' at all ? Probably not 'very', right ?
