Default controller wheels

Anyone else find the wheels on their controllers too small? Have a Futaba 4PV and would like something where the foam is in the 65mm outer diameter range.
Anyone doing anything custom for them?

I'm using one of these custom wheel grips. They are made from a hard sticky rubber and they don't come in larger diameters like you want. However, you could email the owner and see if he's willing to make a special grip with a bigger diameter.

Integy sells aftermarket wheels, not sure if they list the diameter of the wheels or not, they come with adapters to fit most popular brands of radios.

While not the prettiest option, Kimbrough offers these which are definitely bigger than standard wheels since I'm pretty sure they slide over the existing wheel. They have a funky look and maybe good for ergo but I have never used one personally

Hi I am the guy with the grips..they are a rubber type but much softer than the normal rubber grips that come on radios you can make your wheel larger by simply putting one of my grips right over your radios original grip.

I am actually racing with a bigger diameter transmitter wheel for my 4pv. It's a direct fit
