In this article, we’ll introduce three alternative ways of handling radio controller sticks.
The first way to hold the lever is to “Press”
Put your thumb on the stick and control along with the movement of your thumb. This method is among the easiest to maneuver. Since there is no other finger assistance, the thumb will drive a large amount of control spindle. The advantage is that it is relatively flexible, but it is difficult to grasp the rod volume when doing some fine operations.
The second way to hold the lever is “Press + Pinch”
Just hold the stick with the thumb and index finger. The thumb is to control the direction and the index finger to assist. The advantage of this grip method is that the precision can be better grasped through the cooperation of two fingers, this method is also one of the mostly-used grip methods.
The third way to hold the stick is to “Pinch”
Hold the stick with your thumb and forefinger and control the direction through the movement of the two fingers. This method is more accurate and easier to control than the first grip method. However, it is a bit difficult to do some big rod movements, which is relatively troublesome.
The advantage of the above three grip methods is that there is no blind area for operation, and the aircraft is relatively stable, accurate, fast and slow. We recommend that you use the second stroke method. It should be noted that: idle fingers should be placed at the common channel switch, and it is forbidden to leave fingers off the pole or bomb the pole when operating the UAV!
