Single Stick modification for FrSky Taranis

Aloft Hobbies in California has released a small kit, along with a tutorial, for converting one of the two axis gimbals on the Taranis Tx to a three axis gimbal, essentially converting its standard two axis gimbal transmitter into a single stick tx.
There is a hyperlink in the description to the diy tutorial.
The cost is fairly cheap for the third axis stick - $22.50 - but, unless you have a recent (within the last month?) Taranis Plus, you probably want to buy the "improved" two axis gimbal - $13.50 - as it is more robust and better able to deal with added weight of a three axis stick.
The standard Taranis has a control lever on either side of the Tx which I will use for throttle control.... the conventional way of holding a single stick transmitter is to cradle the transmitter in one arm, controlling the elevator, ailerons and rudder with the 3 axis stick with the other hand and the throttle with the fingers of the hand cradling the transmitter.
I learnt on a single stick decades ago so I'm more comfortable with this configuration which, as far as I am aware, stopped being manufactured around 1990.
(And a left handed person could put the three axis gimbal on the other side of the transmitter!)
Aloft Hobbies/FrSky has a longer term project of producing a limited number of single stick transmitter with placement of controls optimized for single stick use but this two thirds step makes my day.
