Radios have improved leaps and bounds in their 30-plus year history. Not long ago, RC car enthusiasts were using stick radios.

I’ve competed at many large events (done pretty well too) and I have found myself returning to the recently reinvigorated 1/10-scale electric off-road racing scene.

    What’s so bad about stick radios for ground use? I love ‘em. I drive noticeably better with them.

    Maybe I spend too much time playing GTA IV with my 360 pad to get good with a pistol-grip? Idunno. My point is not all of us car guys like pistol-grip radios.
