Cheers for the reply, I've been going spastic trying to find any info that doesn't require buying a module. I'm going to order a arduino from eBay, so I'll give it a go next weekend. If I succeed ill post up the circuit and code!

My goal is to make it without buying the electronics. I have (think I have) a pretty good understanding of how this will work but I'll just have to wait and see!

You know whatd be cool...
Flappy paddles :)
Someone did it to their b series gt-p from memory. He does alot of hill climb events? Anyway...flappy paddles would be a worthwhile upgrade for thinking outside the box

That's what I'm going for, I just don't know if you call it paddle shift or tiptronic. I don't know if there is any difference?

Tiptronic is just sport shift ? Flappy paddles are behind the steering wheel

Yes, but I didn't know if the two had to be said together, either way it's still the same electronic control action hey?

better hope I never need to replace the steering wheel though....

Ok so micro update! Iv ordered a arduino mega, i'll have to wait till next week to get it. Iv started on the circuit diagram one part I need 3 of will be ordered from hobbyking when I order my new plane. So it's going to take at least 1-2 weeks before I order so maby 3-4 weeks before I have a system up and running.
