thanks all for your comments, there seem to be more positive comments than negative ones towards the wheels.

Also how do people find the M11 transmitters, is there anything better that people could reccommend.

I can use both, although I do better with a stick transmitter but thats because that is what my brain is used to. The only problem I have, is when I want to jam on the brake in an emergency, I tend to pull the trigger and not push... ahem...

As for sticks, they maybe weird, but Neil Cragg won the off-road worlds with them...

I tried to convert from sticks to wheel years ago- 1991. It wasn't a pleasant experience. Frustrations galore. It simply never felt right no matter what I tried. I had been driving with a stick tx for years and made the switch due the unavailability of any stick tx above entry level in Australia.
The nightmare ended when i received an Esprit2 sourced from Japan after a year or so. Oh God I can actually drive!
It's a real shame stick tx always seem to lag behind in tech (eg vantage type R = MarsR, sanwa/air super exxes= m8, etc...) m11 or helios equivalent? Wait a couple of years for that.
I never understood why people would think twisting a wheel and squeezing a trigger superior to moving thumbs left/right, back/forth thru much greater arcs... It seems to be a trade off btw reaction time and sensitivity.
