multi angle wheel ext unit. (Helios)

how does this unit work? does it allow you to move the wheel on the xy axis or universal? when put in desired position, is it fixed or will it move with your wrist without having to adjust-fasten everytime u change it?

also a ko ad in rc world(jp) had a steering wheel on the accesories section that was for the helios, it looks the same as the stock one, whats the difference?

thanks

It is completely adjustable over the single pivot point. The wheel swings out and back in and that's it. The adjustment can be anywhere you want in between that range and there is a set screw once you get it where you want it.

i've got to say, i had a chance to try the helios with the swivel attachment awhile back, and it was one of the most comfortable radios i've ever held. if it wasn't for my novak synth module, i'd seriously consider picking up a helios and the swivel. heck... i've had my m8 for 5+ years as it is, so maybe i will just pick one up anyway!
