New upgraded version offering Soft and Firm Rubber boots that is replacing the original CineStick R2
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. If considering the Long CineSticks, please read the section on "Which Size CineStick?" below to understand the types of use for each one.

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 our CineSticks good for cinematic motion, but due to the very deliberate and 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 are not really suitable for FPV drones. It uses the standard 4mm screw to attach.
How to use
To attach the CineSticks,
As CineSticks add a piece of silicone between the sticks and the controller, you will not be able to move the sticks to 100%, hence, you cannot start up or shut down from the sticks. You will need to instead start up and shut down from your screen.
- first, unscrew your current joysticks, then take the threaded rods and screw the small threaded end into your joystick threaded holes
- Take the silicone rubber 'boots' and the alloy silicone caps and push the caps onto the top of the boots. You may need to push them on using a screwing action.
- Push the boots over the threaded rods.
- Screw the knobs on top of the exposed threaded rod and push fully down to expose the threaded rod ends.
- Finally, screw in the knobs and adjust down until you get to the desired firmness.
To increase the firmness/resistance, you just screw down the knob of the joystick. To soften/decrease the resistance, pinch the neck of the silicone rubber and unscrew the stick.
To Remove the CineSticks,
- Just pinch the neck of the silicone rubber and unscrew the knob until it screws off.
- Pull the silicone boots off.
- Finally, unscrew the threaded rods.
The CineSticks attach into the 4mm threaded hole, the same way that many detachable joysticks do.

|Current DJI M4 screw type joystick - Cinesticks directly replace this type of Joystick||Previous DJI Cup style internal M6x0.75 Thread that requires the cup mount adapter to work with the CineSticks - as above|
How to use
To attach the Cup Mount Adapter, first remove the current cup style joysticks. Take the end of the cup mount adapter with the larger opening, and screw it down with your fingers until it's firmly on. Then attach the CineStick directly to the top of the adaptor.
