Flying RC has been pretty standard to use a radio transmitter (Tx as it is called, DJI really screwed it up when they started calling an RC Tx a "remote controller") Actually DJI got a bunch of things wrong with there designs and lingo. IMHO. If you ever consider flying RC in the future (fixed wing, quads, heli's) I think learning and using the standard equipment that you'll find at every RC field (prob. in the world) would be in the "best practices" area. I also think that stick resolution and accuracy would not be anywhere near using a normal Tx.
I too practice full scale on the sim and dont use a yoke, which I prob. should, but instead have used a stick with rudder pedals. But it seems interchangeable with flying full scale with a yoke and rudders.
That flight stick is a pretty interesting idea though!!!
