I have been looking for a source for just the Gimbals for a RC transmitter.
Thanks

I have read the gimbals from vex transmitters are easy to remove and can be found cheaply on ebay. There is a tutorial somewhere, i lost the url. Also check this link for building your own 2.4GHz remote control: http://www.lynxmotion.net/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=4399&highlight=spektrum

Thats exactly what I want to make but I need the gimbals. I know I have seen them available but I cant find the link to them anymore.

I know ther like 15-20 bucks a piece if I remember correctly. Just looking for a place to pick them up from before I start calling manufactures of the radio systems.

Searching at major distributors (like Digikey, etc) should turn something up. Careful, strangely some cost $100+ but there are others available for $5-10 each or so.

Use the term "joystick" more commonly used than Gimbal.

Ebay search turns up 6 results on Vex transmitter. 3 sets transmitter/receiver pair NIB currently under 5 bucks each and one set at $24.00 "buy-it now" price.
