    Anybody out there ever swap/reverse wiring in the unimount controller that changes the direction of the up/down function? I have a problem with back on the joystick being down and forward being up.. I have the small stock electric controller not the handheld..

    thanks

    I think a lot of people switck the hoses on the angle rams and then turn the controller aound so back is up now. I think I read that on here before seems that would be easier than messing with the wires.

    That's one I haven't thought of....thanks. Just seems wierd that for decades in aviation and heavy equipment that back was up and forward was down.. but today all the video games geeks program the stuff backward... I'm old school..

    I agree with this is backwards. I actually built my own controller with two (2) toggle switches. It drives my buddy nuts that I wired it to make forward is down and back is up. In look at it as a lever, like my first plow on the quad. Pulling the handle back was up, pushing forward was down. This makes perfect sense to me.

    Oh well, everybody is perfect, as long as no one else is able to offer their opinion.
