How about something like this:

In search mode:
- all normal letters / numbers are added to the search criteria

arrow-up/arrow-down move cursor to prev/next match
ESC terminate search mode

All other keys terminate search and take usual action
This include space, arrow-left/right, page-up/down, F*, enter, etc.
