    Just watched this video, totally mindblown! I had no idea you could increase the height of the control stick!

    You can also replace the stick tops with custom sticks.

    You'll get much better results if you first try to help yourself before asking future questions that make that [statement] obvious.

    Knew it but haven't seen a need to try it... Does it REALLY make that much of a difference?

    It more for ergonomics but the extra length does reduce sensitivity to motion a wee bit.

    Yes! First thing I did! It helps in making movements smoother, more natural looking. The higher they are, the more they need to be moved, resulting in smoother videos that include movement.

    I raised mine up so that I can collapse the cradle with the tablet still mounted and not get the sticks digging into the face of the tablet.

    Pretty standard feature on most RC transmitters since I was a kid. Not all of them, but I'd say on the ones that cost more than ~$30. haha And I have also never found a use for it. I am considering buying those larger thumbs pads to go on top to try.

    Even though I always DO read the manual, I did miss this one. Thanks!
    I am still going over it slowly though....
