OK - lots of things about controllers so I thought I'd add another - hoepfully a quick question.

I use one controller for home and club use - it originally came with a Scalextric sport jack and when I decided to use it at the club I bought a Scalextric throttle extension cable stripped off its plug and fitted a 3 pin electrical socket. Thus I can still use it on my home sport track and by plugging in the throttle extension I use it at my club.

However some of the controllers available today (PM, Fly etc) come with the 3 banana jack outputs - are there off the shelf adaptors available so that it give you the flexibility to cope with different track set-ups w/o hardwiring? If so where are they available from (I've checked all the on-line easy to use retailers and can't find anything)

Fly also produce adapters so that their controllers can be used in all other track systems. Contact your dealer for details

Thanks Aaron - how soon is soon - Fly seem to be hitting their production deadlines in the last few months, which is highly commendable, so I would presume soon means within a month?

Anyone know of a different manafacturer of controller adaptors and where they can be purchasied from? I've hunted high and low and failed so far - I'd like an adaptor for three banana jack pins in to a Scalextric Sport socket in my dirty mits by next Thursday.

As Inte said just make one.Its far cheaper.

You can get a Stereo Socket for about 40p,Banana plug sockets cost about 30p.
A bit of wire is possibly £1. And solder costs about 1p.
It would take about 10 minutes to make.

RS or CPC have all the parts. Or even Maplins!!!!
