CineSticks are resistive joysticks that use a specialised design to give you the smooth control that standard little joysticks just aren't capable of.

You'll be able to achieve those cinematic movements such as pans, dollies, tilts and trucks without any of those little jitters that are so hard to avoid with standard joysticks.

We use specialised and super soft silicone rubber to give you the smooth motion you've been dreaming of. But that's not all, we made them with adjustable resistance to take you from soft control up to very firm control and they're so easy to adjust!

The CineSticks come in two lengths - Standard and Long. You may prefer to have one Long and one Standard which is why we sell them individually or in pairs. Just use them the way that suits you best!

So why do we have these touchy, small joysticks?

When drone flying first started the majority were those homemade FPV drones and when they're raced they needed to be able to turn in microseconds, so it made sense to have such touchy joysticks.

Unfortunately, it seems that nobody at the drone manufacturers ever considered the kind of joysticks that would suit standard consumer drones (cinema drones) so we got lumped with these unsuitable sticks.

Not only are they good for cinematic motion, but due to the very deliberate smooth motion, we've found that newcomers to droning find they can get the hang of things far quicker.

These are made for standard consumer drones (cinema drones) and not for non-FPV drones. It uses the standard 4mm screw to attach.

How to use

To attach the CineSticks, first, make sure that the bolt is fully unscrewed with the 4mm bolt protruding - Just pinch the neck of the silicone rubber and unscrew (counter-clockwise) the stick until you get to the end stop. Then pinch the rubber neck and screw (clockwise) into the joystick threaded hole until it stops turning. At this point just continue screw it (clockwise) until you get to your desired resistance.

To increase the firmness/resistance, you just screw down the joystick. To soften/decrease the resistance, pinch the neck of the silicone rubber and unscrew the stick. You will need to pull the rubber up so there's no gap between the rubber cap and the stick.

To Remove the CineSticks, just pinch the neck of the silicone rubber and unscrew the rubber a few times to remove it.



The CineSticks attach into the 4mm threaded hole, the same way that many detachable joysticks do.

There are undoubtedly more compatible controllers than the following list. These are just the controllers we've tested so far.

Compatible with;

Mini 2, Mini SE,  Mavic Air 2, Air 2S, DJI Smart Controller (current model CP.MA.00000080.01).

Note: We are currently testing options for the older cup style screw-in sticks (as on the Mavic Mini 1 & Mavic 2 series) and will update you with any further compatibilities here in due course.
