I fly a Trex 600 NSP... I have come to not like the auto centering channel on my radios cyclic. I have thought about removing them.. They really seem to get in the way I think. Takes the smoothness out of my cyclic. I can see how they would be good for a beginner and such, but My flying has gotten much better.. For some real smackdown 3d is the autocentering really necessary? It almost seems like training wheels.
I feel that the rudder autocentering helps for sure for managing piros and such... but on cyclic I just don't see the point anymore.

Does anyone fly without them? Just looking for some input.. some yays and nays..

If you fly with the stops removed... please chime in.. I would like to hear your opinion.

Could you imagine a race car with a notch at center wheel? I don't think so..

I'm very much the opposite side of that. I went in and tightened down the springs as tight as they'd go. I like the sticks to pull toward the center.

Our local hobby shop had a store demo of Real Flight G3 which had the controller busted, it wouldn't return to center. I couldn't hardly fly it. - try removing the springs from your sim controller and see if you like flying that way before trying it IRL.

I think we subconsciously rely on the sticks returning to center. I'm thinking it would mean more work to get the sticks back manually. Trimming is an important part of the Rc Experience, Would having a model "trimmed" be possible without springs to center the sticks?

Some good points.. I think I could manage trimming my cyclic without them or maybe use a temprary "centerer" to trim then remove...

But I think my best bet is to try it on my sim and see how it goes... I may end up hating it, but need to try to be sure..

I wonder if any of the pros do it? I mean you got Curtis Young blood with his custom setup..

Who knows... I'm gonnah give it a whirl on the sim.. see whats up..

have to admit this IS thinking out of the box. Personally dont think its a good idea, but I am very confortable having a spring to center.

Curtus does have a special setup, but I an fairly certain he has a spring to center. (its our reference point)

I have my 9303 so tight it's like a mouse trap coming back to center . I tried my sim when the spring let go , not fun !!!

If you decide to follow through with pulling the rtc out of your radio please video it for us .

If you're not living on the edge you're just taking up space !

Did you try reducing spring tension on your sticks to the minimum?
I am thinking maybe you could benefit from minimum spring tension so you only have the slightest centering effect...
