Hi Ed,

They only have the factory grip size, i used to use the large grip on the DX4R Pro. I find the Graupner to be slightly smaller but it hasn't caused me any issues to date.

If you want to view/test a radio we can have one shipped to Dave for you to test and see what you think. Could also include a ESC if you want.
