Default Single Stick conversion

I'm looking to convert my DX7s to single stick. I have seen conversions, however I can't seem to find anyone who sells the gimbals for the conversion.
Do they still make them? if so, who makes them? If someone does, How much do they cost? Is it a difficult job?
I like the idea of having E, R, A on the same stick. Makes it easy to use rudder on takeoff.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Thanks, I already contacted him, however, $200 to put the single stick in my radio that cost $200. That's why I was trying to find the Gimbal to do the install myself. If the cost was a max of $125 I would have just
sent him the radio over the winter to have him do the conversion, I just can't justify the cost of what I paid for my radio new for this install.

There are SS gimbals out there. The JR ones will require minimal adjustment of the case to fit.

Look around. You'll find them in Hong Kong for sure.

Default SS Gimbal

I understood Hong Kong, where do I go to check? I'm 63 and not too good finding things without a web address. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
