PRODUCT REVIEW

On the fly dual speed joystick function

Once the joystick is centered, push twice (2 clicks) to change the joystick throw to half rate (half speed). This will reduce the Ronin response by approximately half which will help in making ultra slow movements and corrections. Push the button twice (2 clicks) again to resume full speed movement. When you power up the Ronin with the Joystick plugged in, the joystick will always start on full speed mode. The 2 click function break down

  • Power up – Full Speed
  • 2 clicks – half speed
  • 2 clicks – full speed
  • 2 click – half speed and so on.

1 review for DJI Ronin Proportional Dual Thumb Joystick – Thumb Stick 3 Axis

  1. 4 out of 5

    (verified owner)

    The thumbstick is very responsive and the size is just right for thumb movement. I would give 5 stars, but installation and cable-management are a bit of a bear; to install the thumbsticks, it requires a small allen key. Normally this wouldn't be an issue, but to put the ronin back into it's case, it involves taking on and off the joysticks. This adds about 10 minutes to the setup time, which is more than one would think: getting them on, positioning them, doing cable management, repositioning them based on the operator, etc. With gloves on (in cold weather), it took about 15 minutes to do properly on set.

    The thumbscrews that allow the units to move up and down on the CF plate would be a great way to loosen and tighten the clamp for the ronin bar. I've ordered some m3 12mm thumbscrews to experiment with.
