Tilt sensor/switch for an RC rideable vehicle

The Project:  I am building a 1/4 scale radio controlled Ford F150 pickup.  The body style was chosen for me when I was given a free 1/4 scale fiberglass body.  The drive-power was originally going to be a small 2-stroke engine, but I was also given a free Pride Mobility Scooter/wheelchair that came without a controller or batteries.  Speed and direction control will be in the form of a SyRen 1X50 from Dimension Engineering, which in turn will be controlled from a common RC transmitter and receiver.
