Looking for a solution as a left handed driver. Any suggestions?
buy him a high-end radio that has reconfiguration feature eg Spektrum DX3R
or make him learn to drive RC like 'normal' ppl
heck 1:1s dun come in righthand & southpaw editions...
i just learned how to drive with what i was handed. its not like throwing a ball or catching...
Use the transmitter on your right hand, that is, the steering wheel not facing you... I saw that many many times... And, I think you will have to reverse the steering channel...

I use Traxxas radios only and I do what danielhr77 said, even though I'm not left-handed. I personally think it's easier that way, to control the trottle with the right hand. It works great, yes you will have to change the steering. Just hold it backward.
PLEASE do not PM me and immediately go offline :p
Sure they do, you just have to buy them in another country usually.Originally Posted by Tamiya
I need R/Cers anonymous.
I am left handed but learned to drive like most right handed people do. By the time I got my hands on a "left handed capeable" transmitter It was too late. I couldn't use it. I am now and always have been a r/c righty.
Pay It Forward.
Same thing as other posters. When I was younger no left hand transmitters and no left hand hockey sticks so I put up with it, thankfully the baseball bat can work on either side .
Seriously if you are looking a Spektrum DX3R comes with the left hand kit or you can get a Futaba or another higher brand and grab the left hand kit as an option.
The world needs to start catering to us southpaws- the superior minority!

You could get a stick radio. I have 3 stick radios and I'm left handed.
However, I've got a friend who can ONLY drive with a stick radio, he claims it's impossible for him to use a normal pistol. I think he's right handed. When I see him looking for a stick radio in 2.4ghz, I've told him to just get used to it and buy a pistol. It may feel weird at first, but you get used to it. Same applies to you, just get used to the right handed version. I have over the years and it's fine.
If they say that to use the right side of our bodies, we use the left hand side of our brain, then us left handed people use the right side of our brain. So, therefore it goes without saying, at least we are in our right mind!!
You are unique just like everyone else
Every car I have ever owned in the US has the gear shift on the right ... I'm right handed. I spent a total of 10 1/2 yrs in Japan and had to switch to right hand drive and the shifter was then on the left side. It ALL looks different when you move to the right side. It took a minimal amount of time to compensate and get comfortable. I bet if you spent a couple of hours getting used to the righty style BEFORE trying to bash/thrash/speed runs, you'd be just fine.
