I can think of a way to control the throttle with a RF transmitter and a relay. You'd have to manually change F/R

I'm sure one of the RC gurus here know an easy to do what you're looking for.

If you don't mind the horrible lockup-autobrake, I could see how to do it with a dual-channel transmitter, like this one.

http://www.lightobject.com/2ch-RF-Remote-Control-1527-TxRx-Set-C2-P108.aspx

I used their previous version for my remote-kill, the range was reasonable.

You'll also need:
One DPDT relay like http://parts.digikey.com/1/parts/752215-relay-pwr-dpdt-30a-12vdc-qc-t92p11d22-12.html

One "standard" 12v SPDT relay like http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320349922777

A Diode (AKA Rectifier)

Wire.

Crimp-on connectors.

Electrical tape.


If you're not scared yet, I'll draw something up by tomorrow.

That's the same RF unit I just used for my powered winch project. That type of set-up crossed my mind, but I'm not thinking out of the box enough tonight to come up with an easy way to incorporate it with a PW wiring diagram.

OK, here you go.

I recommend 12 gauge wire for the most part.

You'll need female spades to connect to the relays.
I prefer uninsulated ones that I cover in heat shrink.

If you put male spades on the ends, you should be able to push them into the stock connectors, and not have to cut any wires. This will also let you restore it to stock when he's old enough to drive himself

12vWiz will be by in a few minutes to draw a prettier one, with at least one less wire

Edited to add - you'll have to set the DIP switches to allow "momentary" activation instead of "latching".
It's simple enough to do with this remote, though.

Great!
I worked hard to avoid cutting any of the "real" wiring - except for adding connections to ground and power

I saw the program, I haven't had time to try it yet.

The autobrake "feature" is how the brakes are engaged as soon as the throttle is let up.
Sure, it's good for kids just getting started, and in this application, but it's hard on the gearboxes, and makes the car jump around like crazy.

I know this isn't really what you asked, so feel free to ingnore it. But as food for thought: An 'accelerator' button on the steering wheel should be pretty simple, and could be re-used later as a 'NOS' button...?

This is something I'm going to look into for my son's Extreme Machine.

Thanks 12vwiz!

I had seen that before, but couldn't put my mouse on it to add the link here. Besides, it's a little off-topic from what he is asking. I just thought I would throw it out there for a 'simple solution' option.

I'll probably be seeking your advice when I get some more decisions made. It seems like everything I want to do requires relays, so I may pick your brain on how to minimize the number of relays. Your diagrams are EXCELLENT!
