Non-spring-loaded Throttle?

That's perfectly normal. The new remotes don't have a throttle spring. They must have noticed that people were ripping them out anyway, and decided to save a few cents on not putting them in.

I just received my first Syma S107 from Amazon today, and I have yet to fly it. I just want to make sure I know a bit more about it before its first flight.

In reviewing the controller I noticed that the throttle isn't spring-loaded as I thought it would be (I planned to remove the spring as many videos show). The model that I bought was advertised on Amazon as a 2012 model of the S107G in the green color. Is this normal? Was the throttle modified by Syma in newer models since everyone seemed to be removing the spring anyways? I haven't opened the controller yet because if this is normal I thought I would save that warranty-voiding step.

Thanks for any light you can shed on this!
