- Works fine.
- I put a set of these red 1/2" tips on my Futaba 8FG. What a nice addition. I'm a "pinch" flyer and these allow a solid, firm grip on the sticks.
- I own at least 6 pairs and have both versions. They work great for me. To adjust height on V1 - thread on a metric nut and then the styx. Find height you like and tighten nut against styx.
- VERY NICE FEEL! MAKES FLYING SMOOTHER. EZ TO PUT ON. SO GET SUM
I bought the Version 1 because I am cheap :-)
I have always thought that bigger sticks would be a good idea for Heli flying and it took me a few flights to get used to them and now I love them!
The V2 overcome a few minor issues but the V1 are great!
I'll order another set for my other TX soon!
I ordered these to just try something new out and for the price you really can't go wrong! But turns out they are great it seems to have helped me smooth out my inputs. I pinch the sticks when I fly so the larger end really is comfortable while the knurled finish really gives excelled grip.
I would definitely recommend these to anyone. They aren't adjustable height but I found them to be to sit just right for me.
Also Progressive shipped them to me extremely fast! Just like how all mine and my family/friends orders have been.
- I was really surprised to find there is no hex screw to adjust the length. I guess you could screw one into the thread if you wanted them longer. But that isn't really the issue for me. The problem I found is they're far too long for me even when screwed all the way in. Unlike conventional stick ends the thread doesn't go all the way through to allow the use of the a hex screw on top to adjust length and give you shorter sticks than they do now. You're stuck with a very long stick length. Bit of an oversight.
