Default Left hand radio

Could someone tell me a radio that has a left hand conversion? I'm right handed but because of videogame controllers it just feels natural to steer with my left and use the throttle with my right.

I think I would like the 3PK better than the M11. Thanks for replying guys.

There is no conversion for the M11. Just remove 2 screws and turn the top unit 180 and it is left-hand compatible.

They both can be switched but the 3PK seems hard to work on.

i had a transmitter that had a little pully thingy on the back, and you could pull it and you could push the steering wheel to the other side, but it was a 'radioshack style' car, and quite slow....

I have the same "problem". It just seems more natural to steer lefty. What I do is hold the Tx so the wheel is on a horizontal plane. This has an added benefit of turning the wheel right/left, as opposed to "normal" up/down. This used to be a problem when using an antenae based Tx. I would sometimes poke the guy next to me on the stand, with the antenae, lol. I have been using Nomadio Sensor for quite some time now and it is awesome for me

Yes it is, but working with it like I do just felt most natural.

Both the M8 & M11 can be used right or left handed. Just remove 2 screws, flip it around & reinstall the screws. No conversion kit needed.

I'm not sure i could ever do that. Holding like that would be too uncomfortable for me.
