    For my robot I need 3 joysticks for all the controls I haven't seen a transmitter that can do this...

    I could in theory build my own transmitter and that is what I am leaning towards but I can't find any really good info for what I need, I know how to transmit using Amplitude Modulation and I'm getting started on Frequency Modulation and that is what I would need to control the servo's I believe...

    Anyway if anyone has any suggestions on what route I should take...

    Little Info:
    1 Joystick - Drive Joystick
    2 Joystick - Arm Joystick (Controls two servos)
    3 Joystick - Head Joystick (controls a motor and a servo)

    You could get two controllers with 2 joysticks each. Maybe not very elegant but a fast and easy solution to your problem.

    why not get a 5/6 channel radio control transmitter and just use one joystick for 2 functions that you should be able to toggle with one switch input, since you most likely wont be driving and using the arm at the same time, you can toggle the function of one joystick to perform 2 different functions, so one joystick controls the head at all times, the other toggles between drive and arm control when needed...
