My X9303 collective stick is not real smoother anymore. It's hard to describe. It's not the notches that I feel, it's more like the feeling of rubbing two pieces of wood together - just a lot of friction.
I've taken the radio apart and loosened the tension clamp and applied some light grease which helped for a while but the issue is back.

Has anyone figured out how to keep the collective stick smooth but not loose? I don't want a stick that just flops around.

I had the same issue.

I ended up bending the spring, that flat piece of metal a couple MM wide that press on the gimbal. I tried to bend it in an attempt to make the preasure even across the throw of the stick. It acctually helped.

Also, I have my spring tention as low as I can get it without having the stick flop around like a dead fish.

if you crack the radio open you will see the backside of the stick has small "grooves" in it...sand those grooves smooth and you will get a better feeling stick...thats what I do to mine and it works fine for me
