    Just like the title says, can this be done? Don't really want to pay $250 for a new one, if i can make one for cheaper. Does anyone have one for sale possibly?

    Both the truck harness and the controller can be made with ease.

    If you can't find a four position "joy stick" at your local electronics store, you can use two momentary toggle switches, on-off-on, just make sure they are momentary - won't stay in the "on" position. Use one for up/down and the other for left/right...

    Anyone interested in building me one of these or rebuilding mine. i picked up a used unimount last winter and the control looked like it'd been in a light fire (little melting and cracked cord) worked fine til now.
    thanks and if anyone is interested my email it terrajeep@hotmail.com

    thanks and take care,
