Size does matters, but there are limits, think the DX8 had reached the maximum size for a handheld Tx .
I can imagine that the so called pult transmitter users like it big and wide but they have another method or way for handling their stick's and knobs.

Sorry I dont understand "pult Tx users". Is that what we would refer to as "pinching" vs "thumbing"?

Aerocal,

If the transmitter is (usually) mounted in some sort of tray where Your hands can rest or lean on and You are controlling Your stick's with thumb and finger. Not holding Your transmitter on the sides but mainly resting on the strap around Your neck. Hope this is some understandable explanation.

Aerocal,

Neither did I know it's been namend 'pinching' so I learned something also. Thanks!
In Europe "Pult" is referring to the tray or platform where the transmitter is fitted or mounted on/in.

Regards,
Danny.

I have played with it at the Toledo show, and I found it to be a very nice size. I would have bought it there if I could have.

Hi Danny,

"Pinching" refers to controlling the stick tips with the thumb and index finger.

"Thumbing" refers to having only the thumb on top of the stick.

Tray users are probably all "pinchers" because of how they hold the stick (I found it the more natural way when I fly on the DX10t).

I fly hand-held radios both pinching and thumbing because my hands are big enough. I have thumbed on the DX10t, too, but it kept causing button presses because of the tip switches

Holey moley, i've never (openly) been called a troll before...
What a unpleasant thing to say!
To my best knowledge I've never done anything to deserve this.
Well Teryn... I don't know you, but I will tell you this:
I will just LOVE you back!
hahahaha

That's not how I read it. To me it looked like Teryn was calling VP a troll, asking you to ignore VP's posts (it makes the thread much easier to read).

It is great to meet a guy who examines his conscience instead of getting defensive.

Hi Andy,

Thanks for the additional information.
The 'pult' method still is very popular over here in Europe.
The 'pinching' method in combination with the 'pult' tray should give a more finer control movement they say, wich I can believe to.
The pult method always gave me the feel as if I were an ice lolly sales man at the beach, a specially with those large oversized tray's.

regards,
Danny.

If you saw the guys flying at our club with no tray and often no neckstrap, you might think otherwise. But then, these guys are the best of the best and can make anything look easy.
