I have had numerous requests for a turn-key throttle solution for RC systems. So, to that end, I am starting this tutorial for the technically challenged who want the basics of how to build a throttle for an RC throttle interface system with off the shelf parts.
Bear in mind, I am not the first to setup a throttle like this, nor am I an electronics engineer. In fact, I am somewhat electronically challenged myself. However, I have been forced to learn some basics for the good of my hobby and the industry as a whole. I want to share a basic throttle layout here for beginners to refer to. This is obviously super simple for the very technically inclined members of our forum. But, it should help those who are not as technically savy.
The products I am using here are;
#1 Astro Flight servo tester
#2 Dimention Engineering VHV BEC (Very High Voltage Battery Eliminator Circuit)
#3 Magura twist grip E-throttle
You can use other brands of BEC and servo tester if you desire, especially if you want to save some money. But, these are the items readily available at my local hobby shop. So, that is why I chose them. They are also high quality and work well together.
