Default Lefty radios

I'm finally admitting I need a left handed radio. I've always used righty radios and I am sick of crossing my left hand over. What's available that will run a spektrum module but isn't crazy expensive? I am happy with my DX3.0 features just want the wheel on the correct side.

Default M11

The Airtronics M11 seems to be the radio of choice for lefty's, and you can use Spektrum 2.4ghz or I think Airtronics has their own 2.4ghz system.

The Spektrum DX3R can be easily configured for left-hand use in about 3-5 minutes. Plus that way you can use your same Spektrum receivers too

When is that due out? I'm interested and thinking about it. Just need to figure out how to get a lipo pack to put out 4.8V.

LOL, a lot of people have said that you can't see it in the pics. It's behind the drop-down wheel.

Damn I was hoping they perfected a mental link. Just think go faster while concentrating or something.

So no matter which path I take, nothing is exactly cheap like righty radios huh?

You have to also remember that the DX3R will be faster even than the current generation of Spektrum modules and receivers, so you're paying for the latest in technology too.
