Crafty, We've discussed the enclosure before and I am absolutely certain I could help you. If this is the one thing that's preventing you from marketing the remote I'm telling you it can be solved with off the shelf parts...

It's not as easy as you think it should be go from prototype to product. Especially when its such a niche thing. There are a few hundred app users. Even if all of you wanted a remote, that would not be enough units to make die casting make sense. The economies of scale are making this harder than I'd like.
