Remote controlled outboard electric motor Answered

Hi, I would like to build a remote system for an electric outboard motor. It could be controlled with a wired remote or not. I would really like to make it so that i can just "clip in" my existing Minnkota transom motor and control speed and direction. I have some electrical skills but really need ideas about gears, controls and suggestions. Any interrested?

A simple way would be to attach (somehow) an RC servo motor to the existing throttle. You can then control it with a simple radio control transmitter and receiver.
