    I have a boss V controller as a spare but a 7.5 super duty blade (both are RT3) before I plug it in anybody know if it will hurt anything? Will it even work?

    If not I guess I got one I will trade for a straight blade controller (Not joystick please!)

    You can, in that it will operate it exactly like a straight blade, ie no independent wing control but full function angle left/right lift and lower. Handy to know in a pinch.

    No one mentioned, if you use a V controller on a Straight, the buttons are opposite. Right is left & left is right. But you'll get used to it quick.....

    Hold both the buttons and it goes the way you want (ex. hold both the left buttons and it goes left vs only hold one and it goes right).


    Anyone know if a v blade joystick will work on a straight blade? I've used v blade handhelds on a straight blade but never a joystick.
