Spiderbrace2 & Remote Control

Hi all,I'm thinking to buy a Spiderbrace2 to use with my PD170 camera but I like to have a remote control to use with the brace so I need an advice about it.
Can you help me?
Any experience?
Some photo?

Thanks in advance.
Maurizio,Italy.

I have the SP2 and use a Varizoom (joystick). Few controllers are small enough to fit on the short piece of handle that the SP2 provides.

Thanks Ernest for the answer.
I'm looking to Varizoom VZ Rock.Do you think is a good choice or is it too big to use with Spiderbrace2?

Maurizio.

OK. I just realized I don't have the SpiderBrace2 but just the Spiderbrace (for the XL1). So, you may not have the problem shown in the photos below. Basically, there's only a small place to put a controller unless you stick it so far down the handle that there's little room for your hand. The SP2 seems to have a different design. Judge for yourself I guess.
