Default Finger Gap

I recently bought a Ko-Propo EX-10 and I have pretty skinny index finger which causes a problem in which i can't get on the brakes so quick. The gap is about a little more than 1/4 inch. It normally causes me to crash or t bone cars when i go in the corner in deep with my oneway.

I've heard several suggestions to solve this problem such as gluing foam to the trigger side but I would like to hear more suggestions.

You could try a piece of fuel tubing on the brake side.

You could also try to heat the trigger with a lighter and bend it in a little.

Take some foam,
cut strips into brake side of trigger size,
stack as much as you need.
Grab some big ol strink wrap to cover and use soldering iron to shrink it, as not to melt the trigger all together i fyou used a lighter or heat gun.
This should give you what your looking for without doing any permanant damage to your radio.

I guess I took the easy way around it. I took a lighter and carefully heated the trigger at the joint where it splits from throttle to brake and squeezed it to fit my finger and held it there a couple of sec. until it cooled. No problems, no added items to the trigger to fall off/become loose.

That was probably easier than growing fatter fingers

how about gluing pieces of foam to your index finger? saves you from any modification on the radio.
