    I believe I have seen some on this forum, tried searching, but didn't find anything.. or maybe it was on the Demunseed Youtube site.-- I will search a little and get back.

    Those control sticks can be extended up to 1 1/2 inches from the base. How much more does one need?

    No more, that would be more than adequate-- but I believe the ones that I did see had a nice contoured thumb pad on top, which may be desirable for some-- just cant remember where I saw them.o_O Maybe in an RC Plane book:confused::confused::confused:

    I hear ya !! Those will raise it up just a little by themselves and I have big hands so they help me and for 10 bucks or that's what they were when I got them they were great for me. Had been using pencil erasers that slip over the ends .

    I know exactly what you mean. I'm a quadriplegic and was looking for something similar. My fingers don't work so, I have to use my palms on the controls. Having a joystick extension (4-6" in height) would allow me to slide between my thumb and 1st finger giving me much more stability. I used to fly RC planes 15 yrs ago with similar remote controls. I took regular ink pens apart and slid the pen housings over the joysticks. Now looking to buy a Phantom, I had hoped there were products available to extend the joysticks.
