My biggest issue so far is how annoying it is to try to use my Levin sword for aerials.

As someone who uses tilt stick and also uses my c-stick for aerials, I find it's very frustrating to want to tilt someone on the ground and then use my control stick to chase them with an aerial, especially if my tilt misses and I want to do a retreating Fair.

Does anyone get annoyed by this? Other than switching my stick to c-stick, any recommendations?

If you have A+B Smash on, you can pull out Levin Sword for aerials much easier. This also helps when you have bronze sword already equipped and you want to do Levin nair, since you can't smash the stick anyway, but it works for all aerials. The timing is pretty strict though, and sometimes you may end up charging Thunder instead. Still, it's your best option imo.

Ah, that's exactly what I was looking for, thank you!!!

Honestly, if you're going to play Robin, you need to use Smash stick, end of story. At least while you're using Robin.

I don't really think smash stick is worth the trade off with things like attack cancelling becoming staples for Robin. I think it's probably a better idea to get used to aerial smash inputs. Putting your stick sensitivity to high can help confirm Levin aerials (though regardless of your control scheme, the only way to use Levin Nair out of bronze sword is A+B smash)
