Default Left handed

So first off I just wanna say that I'm new to the rc world and I'm having a hard time finding a left handed Transmitter. The only ones I can find are 400+ I dont have the budget for that. I currently have a losi 5ive t 2.0 can any one point me in a direction. All the forums I can find are old Transmitters that aren't made anymore.
thanks

Sounds like he is looking for a wheel transmitter, not sticks?

My sons are lefties. Back when we were running boats we had 7 kids in the house (Kids #4 and #5 of 7). Obviously, I didn't have money for expensive transmitters either. My sons both learned to drive with standard "righty" transmitters because of necessity.

Now, working in the industry, I can see why they don't make lefty radios for the more budget-conscious products. Making the radios switchable left/right adds a lot of complexity to the mold costs as well as for connectors inside. The only radios that can afford to have that are the more expensive ones.

The options for you are, unfortunately, exactly as you stated. Either buy a more-expensive, switchable radio, or change to using a stick radio. I wish I had better news.
