Default Stick radios.

Was wondering.. where is it possible to buy FM/PCM type Stick Radios with Exponential, Dual Rate, Model Memory, etc.. adjustments ?

I like the feel of these stick radios much more so than pistol grip types.

Hi guys

The KO stick your talking about is the Esprit Vantage2, this is the one used by Hirosaka and Spashett. It doesn't have a PCM feature, but it does everything else that you need, aswell as quite a few other useful features. They're also very reliable

You've also got sticks made by Sanwa (Airtronics) and Futaba, the Futaba one will probably support PCM. The majority of people use the KO though as it's just the best!

Your best bet to get one of these would be to contact a hobby shop in the UK as they readily stock stick transmitters.

The KO is now available in the US. Only on 27 bnad though. If you go to the US KO Propo website, you'll see it. It is the new Type R version with HRS like the Mars R. Just ask your local hobby shop to order it but you can also get it direct from KO's online store if you don't mind the outlandish $350 price tag.

hi tranced,

the only one I can think of is Futaba's T3VC. I think it's the stick form of the 3PJS? Had an Esprite II but had too much interference problems with it. To me, the T3VC also felt better in my hands. YMMV though.
