      For those of you who may know someone who needs a bit of help with throttles
      (i.e., have trouble turning a knob).....and you are not an expert on buying
      electronic parts and making your own circuitboards (or pegboards).

      Here's a shortcut on how to get there:

      http://www.electronickits.com/kit/complete/motor/k166.htm

      when you build the kit, DO NOT solder the potentiometer into the circuit
      board, instead use the wires coming from a pot in a joy stick to solder to those
      pads. Your joystick should be of a type that has a spring return to the center
      position. That will match the characteristics of the regulator (i.e., center
      of rotation is zero volts output). You can always change out the
      potentiometer in the joystick for one with a resistance value equal to the value of the
      pot that comes with the kit...that would be even better.

      Hope this helps someone,
