If I'm not mistaken, the E controller is just a regular electron beam controller with longer wires between the hand controller and alligator clips (and different graphics, but otherwise the same.)
I think. Looking at the catalog descriptions for the E controller and the standard electron beam, they both are powered by 4 AA batteries, but the E controller has 30 ft. of cable, while the electron beam has 17.
If you feel the need to have 30 ft. of cable, you could probably just add to the wires on your standard electron beam controller easily and cheaply. You could use speaker wire or some other two conductor wire you have handy, trim off the existing alligator clips, splice in 13 ft of wire, and then re-attach the clips to your new "end". If the alligator clips are sottered (can't spell) on, you can get new alligater clips from Radio Shack for around $1.
