Hey Guys,

I'm looking to swap out my gimble springs for a softer feel. I've loosened the tension screws as far as they will go, but still much too stiff. If I could only have the spring tension of my Futaba 9CHP.. what a difference.

Anyhow, if any knows of a softer spring kit or someone who may be capable of swaping out the stiff springs for a softer set, I'm all ears..

Thanks,
Raz

Century Spring Corp. part #461 is what you want.

Yes the ones it comes with are useless if you want fine control.

Hey Davey!

This is such great news.. I've been battling this issue for longer than I can recall.

I've noticed Century forces a minimum $40. You wouldn't happen to have an extra set laying around you would want to sell me, would you?

Thanks,
Raz

Try here:

Scroll down a bit for heavy duty transmitter stick.

I use these in my radios!

Edit: Oops sorry. Just noticed you want to go the other way!

Raz,

Sorry I have not got any spares - I bought some other stuff and two sets - one for me and one for a friend.

Thanks Davey! I appreciate the help..

Sharam, the Radio South Springs sounds to be stronger springs. I'm looking for a softer feel than stock. Thinking the Century Spring may be the way to go here.. Just wish they sold them in pairs or something..

I went ahead and placed an order. They forced me to purchase 28 springs.. If any one needs any, you know where to find me..

Thanks Guys!
