If you have a really good stick radio and are comfortable with it, don't change. There are a few top drivers that actually use them. Years ago when I first got into RC that is what I had and it was fine. I got out of it for a few years and got a wheel radio when I got back into it. It is all a matter of personal preference and comfort. I would not worry about it unless you are looking for a change. I own a KO Helios now and love it, but you are going to get a bunch of different answers from every one. Best thing is if you are going to go wheel, try a few in your hand before you actually buy.
