Converting old RC transmitters

Hi all.

First post so here goes.

I'm looking for resource on connecting and old transmitter to a board and generate the ppm signal to be fed into a Tx module (frisky).

There is a great site single channel.co.uk with code but what I'm after is a basic understanding of how it all hangs together. I want to be able to read around the subject to help in understanding.

I have a background in electronics and am a software engineer (C#) but Arduino is all new to me.

I have also looked at the servo library doc but unless I've missed something these are for outputting to a servo, not reading position front pot.

In the meantime Google will be my friend.
