The 'Shift' drone controller enables users to control the functionality of their drone without having to use more than one hand. Created by This Is Engineering, a Seoul-based company, the 'Shift' controller replaces traditional drone controllers that feature joysticks and a two-handed design. The 'Shift' is capable of being used with one hand and one thumb in order to make flying a drone more intuitive and easy to do.

Currently funding on Kickstarter, the 'Shift' drone remote control features a specialized ring section that acts as the thumb grip to make flying a drone around an area more contoured. The 'Shift' controller can even be augmented to hold onto a smartphone for enhanced controller like never before.
