These are REALLY nice and pokey.. HUGE improvement over stock. They have more colors too.. but these are the ones to get. They screw right on... and you can drill in a bit if you want them short.. I like mine really short.

I swapped the DX8 ones with the DX6i ones - the DX6i ones feel better and can be made shorter than the DX8 ones.
Also looks OEM rather than modified.

If you want less bling I found these in black.
http://cgi.ebay.de/lIl-CNC-Alu-Steue...item27b6be2324

I have this on the left stick:http://www.helidirect.com/aluminum-c...ll-p-14927.hdx Gives good grip for throttle and rudder management.

And the pointy one on the right stick. When piro flipping I found out that the thumb moves away from desired position with big flat surfaces on the stick, so pointy it is.
