Hello everyone.

I have been practising sideways tic toc with my heli. I notice that I keep giving small input that would effect the maneuver. I run hardly any expo on my heli's. It's just what I like. I did not like the inputs I know that I was giving.

I have always run my spring tension what ever the radio is stock. I decided to run the spring tension as tight as possible. I could feel in the sticks when I was giving other inputs. This made a big improvement in how I performed the maneuvers. Very happy with the results

It shows that it's good to try simple new things to improve your flying.

I tried it once but it felt too stiff for me. I went back to stock settings and like them better. Glad it worked for you though. That is as cheap of an upgrade as you will ever have in this hobby

Is it easy to do? I am thinking about tightening the tension on the sticks for dx7se radio. I notice the sticks loose compared to my futuba 9superC. The futuba radio on the Titan is more in control and the se radio is picking up movements I am really do not want but I really do not know exactly where the exact position is.

I found tight springs helped me to keep from giving unwanted inputs. I also have started using expo. even though I learned way back with out it, it softens up the center.
Damper, yes its very easy, the hardest part is opening up the back of your Tx. Then just adjusting the tension screws on the springs to your liking.
