Does anyone know of a device or plans for building a DSC box that interfaces with a Futaba Rx that will allow me to perform servo control without a Radio (which is usually imponded at big races).

I searched the web and found software that uses a basic Stamp Circuit and PC Serial Port but I don't want to lug around a laptop. I was hoping for a box with a dial.

If anyone has some info they could pass along that would be great.

Most races impound radios, but in the case where you have a radio that has DSC, it is most likely a module-based system. You can take your radio, leave your module at the impound. If they don't allow you to do that, then they are...well, I leave that for a different forum. :)

Thank you for all the replies.

With the help of an EE friend, we made one using a Basic Stamp chip and a prototype board. Work the ESC too. Still has a few kinks but hopefully in a few weeks I will have an enclosure and in a form we can use at the track.

Thanks for the 411 on the Hitech Servo Tester but that is more than I expect and probably more than I would would want to spend.

Thanks again for everyone's help
