Radio stick configuration
Is it a good idea using the spring return to center position on the throttle/pitch stick for 3D?

yeh bad idea, you might not be able to grip the stick and it will fling out of your fingers, and there goes your heli.

Thanks guys. How about the ratchet mechanism? I have it off but it feels a bit strange especially since I used it for my plane.

The throttle stick should only move when you move it. It sounds like your radio could use a tune up from the manufacturer.

The rachet click is a problem when you are hovering. It's highly unlikely that the position you need is exactly on a click. One click my be too high and the very next one down is too low. So you will always be fighting the tendency to stay on a rachet position.

On some radio's you can simply flip the ratchet spring over, so the dimple faces away from the stick. If you look really closely you will also find stick tension adjustments for the 2 axis's of travel, on most radio's.I lost my infamous tag line.

Yup I've noticed the ratchet problem on hovering. I just need to get used to the smooth action without it. I think it's worth looking into the tension adjustments as the stick just flaps up and down without the ratchet.
Thanks for the tips guys I appreciate it.

File the ratchets off so its silky smooth. This will give you much better collective control.
