Transplanting the Futaba Navy twin stick into a modern radio?

Hello,
I happen to have an old radio with a Futaba Navy Twin Stick - it's like this http://www.conrad.com/ce/en/product/...WIN-STICK-F-14
For my needs (controlling boats and steam locomotives it seems very useful).
I have almost no idea about electronics, so please bear with me.

I'd like to know if there is any modern 2,4 GHz radio which could have the twin stick installed into, that is, it should be compatible electronically with the Futaba twin stick. I don't mind doing some alterations on the radio's case myself to make it fit.

I can do what you want to achieve but I can not provide details as I would normally figure those out during the conversion process.

You can check my blog on conversions I've done.

I think this address your problem, it can be adapted to other radios or your present radio can be converted to 2.4 Ghz with a DIY module(or even just accept a regular plug-in module). ivanc does makes nice conversions for almost any transmitter!
