Are stick extensions available for the VControl TX?

Just received mine in the mail today(gun metal grey...looks and feels awesome) and the sticks are to short for me.

I use a neck strap and am a stick pincher...

Oops...am checking page 16 of the manual...

I've extended them as far as possible....would prefer a touch more.

Also, would like the ends thicker....so the question still stands.

I have some old JR stick extensions, perhaps the threads will fit.

Haven't checked yet.

Thanks

In addition to thicker stick ends, are the Savvies screen protectors good?

JR stick extensions have a different thread...so much for that idea....

I see they have "shorties" at Mikado USA....but they have no stock...

And I'll need a TX case...and there's no stock either....

I'm not in a hurry...just jazzed up...because the system is really cool...

JR and Futaba use different thread size extensions. Tell me what the VC's threads are.

If you can determine the metric thread size try the SECraft gimbal stick ends at Esprit Model.
These are available in many different lengths.

I just saw where Mikado USA has "shorty" ends that are "fat".

Ordered some....will see how they work out for me.

I'm just used to the JR12X log extensions.

Really?

Well, I just happen to have an old DX7 somewhere.

Now, if I can just find it....

Almost seems sacrilegious to put Spektrum stick ends on a VControl TX......LOL

Some are 3mm some are 4mm just depends on which set of gimbals the radio has, so not all will fit.

Just checked.....

Spektrum DX7 sticks are 4mm and won't work...

Would have looked nice, though....

Bingo!

The knurled aluminum stick ends from my old Futaba FP-T8SGA-P 72Mhz Tx fits perfectly....and looks great with the gun-metal grey
finish of the VControl Tx.

I knew there'd be a use for that old TX some day....
