The question: Is there a plug and play microcontroller/circuit board sold anywhere that can connect to a wheel with buttons that will connect to the Simucube Antenna.
The reason: I took my ECCI 6000 momo wheel with paddle shifter and pedals apart, put the circuit board/micro controller in a project box and attached the wheel to Simucube2. The cord that attached the buttons to the micro controller was not coiled and was being held taut as I turned the wheel using a small spring loaded ID card device. The cord met with an accident and severed completely. The attachments on both ends are Dupont connectors so my first option is going to be coiled cord and a Dupont connector kit to build a new wire.
But I know the Simucube has the antenna that searches for other equipment and I wondered if using Arduino mine and an RC transmitter whether the simucube would recognize the signal etc. There is negative space in the wheel to wire up the microcontroller and extend an antenna between the spacers.
A much simpler version of this: https://howtomechatronics.com/projects/diy-arduino-rc-transmitter/ (then again this might not even be related to what I am talking about.)
I suspect this would be very over my head.
Anyone here got any bright ideas?
