a receiver as if it were a servo, and would complete a circuit when
the stick is moved to one side? An added bonus would be to have two
cicruits, one completed when the stick is on one side, and the other
completed when the stick is on the other side.
This would be simple enough to set up with a servo that turns a switch
(or two switches) on and off, but I'd rather have something smaller
and simpler. I'm guessing it could be done with a single chip and
perhaps a transistor or two. What model of chip can easily decode a
servo signal with a minimum of external components?
Why? There's lots of possible uses, but the one I'm thinking of is a
digital camera on a plane. I'd rather solder to the switches than use
a servo to push them if I can -- it would save some weight, and be
simpler to set up.
