Default DS12 For Pincher

So, I知 40% there but there is no chance to try before buying. I would like feedback from people using this radio that fly pinch and how they find it?

Is reach ability for rear shoulder switches ok?

Fits fine.

I am 80% comfortable with right rudder at full negative on my left hand but it is fine. Slight issue with the articulation in my hand so can't blame the radio.

I have to remove the 2 rotary knobs at the top for my fingers to not hit them.

This is why a DS-16 G2 is a better choice for a pincher, if you can afford it.

... just buy 2 additional switches and replace the 2 knobs by switches. others are just using smaller knobs and they are happy too. but it is true: without some mod it's not perfect for some pinchers, others have the sticks at max length and no problems...

I have read that replacing knobs with switches makes it worse especially if the switches are toward you.

Atm it seems I知 best to save my money, I don稚 have any issues with what I have but I was certainly toying with the idea.

For anyone who uses the DS12 pinch, is it possible to share a pic?

How is the reach for back shoulder switches?

Rather than start another thread,
For Voice timer, for voice when I flick a switch like for flight mode, what Modules do I require?

I think it should be Voice Output module.

yes, voice output module will give you various voice options like spoken flightmodes, spoken system alarms, output/event (5) - which is i.e. used for other switches than flightmode, spoken telemetry alarms (10), spoken telemetry values, etc
