Need info, I have a freind that has one arm.
I need a little help here. I have a close family friend that is retired and has a real interest in flying remote control. With only one leg and one arm he is at a bit of a disadvantage.
He needs no help, he lives and gets around just fine.
He just has an interest in flying helis and or quads.
It there a controller that he could get to fly with?
Friends don't encourage friends to fly helis! It can cause part shortages.

You might want to go email Curtis Youngblood through his support page. I think he may have some answers as he used to, and still may, fly a single stick setup with the yaw control built into the rotational axis of the cyclic stick. Couldn't be too hard to add a pitch/throttle slider to that as well. Kind of like the stick buttons and switches jeti is putting in the ends of the sticks. If you do find out, let all of us know. There are some guys using rc helis with wounded warrior rehabilitation as well. They could probably help you or might could use the info themselves for guys with missing limbs due to IDE injuries.Where are we going, and why am I in this hand basket?

Yes, a single stick control for roll, pitch, and yaw. Then, there is the individual named Rick who uses a mouth controller for collective. Here's a thread talking a bit about it and will lead you to some folks that know Rick: http://rc.runryder.com/t715007p1/ .

Oh, re-read the thread and Rick's RR username is 1hander.
