Default Transmitters For Lefties

I did a search in this thread and came back with nothing. So instead of spending days scrolling. I was wondering if you guys could throw some options out there for me. I need to get my 6 year old a radio before he destroys something or someone😬. I am right handed myself. But drive left handed. I us a old m11 converted to 2.4ghz. But was looking for something smaller and lighter for him. Feel free to add any at any price range. Myself I am looking for something used or new under $150. But hopefully maybe this thread can be stickied for future reference of lefties👍🏼

Hi,
you can check Graupner x-8n. Very capable radio and comes with everything in the box to convert it to left handed.

Click on Search at the top, select Advanced search from the dropdown. Then type left into the keyword search box, select Search titles only and go for it. Conclusion: only high-end transmitters support putting the steering wheel on the left side.
Arrma once had a rtr radio that could turn the steering wheel either left or right (atx-300) but it is discontinued and seems hard to get.

I believe my 4PKS-R (and probably the 4PX and 4PXR) can be setup for a leftie.

Looks like a dx3r is in his future. The hunt is on for a good used one.
I did the title search for the whole forum. And I got several previous threads come up.

Futaba 3PK, Hitec Lynx4s. Most of the better radio's will mount the wheel on either side of the display
