Question

I know there outfits available for lots of $. Has anyone home built their own remote control for a kicker motor? What about throttle control?

Hiya,
Don't know very mcuh about steering systems, other than the TR-1 seems to be the one to get, but as far as throttle controls, check out the Troll Master - it's a slick deal. A rheostat-type dial on a cable connects to your throttle cable, and you just turn a dial to adjust the speed. On some models you also can just hit a button to go to idle or either 3/4 or full throttle (I forget which it is).

Thorne Brothers carries them. They're pretty cool.

Cheers,
RK

Hey Val,
No particular brand. I just knew they existed (but out of my pocket book) so wondering if guys ever built their own. Maybe they're cheaper than I thought? I built my own steering arm. Pretty cheap at first but I came up with a way better design this year. Bushings and machining cost more though.

I am asking which brand since I have several broken or missing parts remote controls, I'll be glad to sell them for very few bucks (we are talking $ 5 or so).
If you can come and look, it might be helpful.
