Can I use this controller on an rc truck/car?
 
Hello, I was wondering if I can use this controller for a rc car? http://www.rcplanet.com/Futaba_3FR_S...kasterisk-.htm I know nothing about electronics, so how would I do that if I can?

you could use it but would be a real pain in the butt

I can't use my arms, I'm a quadriplegic. (I'm using special tech to type.) So I need something I can use with my mouth.

Oh sorry.  It should work its been way to many years since I looked at airplane stuf. Might be better to ask in the airplane forums

I think it should work. I'll ask there, thanks.

could use that and only use the right hand side of it which will do the same as the futaba but its 2.4ghz so farther range, and no antenna to extend (I've used one for a ground based tracked vehicle I made a few years back)

I'll be able to brake and everything with one stick right?

yup
just pull backwards for brakes
up left for forward left,... etc All of which would have to be set. but with some help it wouldn't be difficult as ESC's have to be set anyways.

only can't remember off the top of my head what channel does what I think its either 1&2, or 3&4 for the right hand side.

Legally you can't use the Futaba in a car, at least in the US. 72Mhz is an air-only frequency.
Sure, you'll never use it around aircraft, and it's old tech. But you never know if an old tech airplane guy will be around you.

The USA has some extremely STUPID laws.
It would probably be for interfering with a spectrum or something stupid, and probably carries some ludicrous fine, and jail time.
