I found the supplied stylus was straight out of the "ministry-of-crap-design" as well.
Made my own. It's a carbon fibre rod that slips into a similar tube.
The tube is super-glued onto the side of the 2800.
The stylus has a short bit of tube glued on it's end to make a "knob", the blue insulating tape you can see around this makes it into a tight fit against the case so it doesn't slip out.
I had the carbon fibre stuff laying around as I used to do some model flying, a model shop (or fleabay?) should supply it.
Work's a treat, why didn't MM supply something like that?
