Greetings all! I've noticed some chat about the throttle spring not being

on the newer remotes. What I've found, so far, is that the model 107s

with the new paint-schemes don't have throttle springs. My new 107 in green

arrived yesterday and yup, no springs attached!

   Good news, makes hovering easy and more fun, can pass off the remote to

the wife to let her fly it while I take a few photos.Smile Also helps in

terrorising the cat!

   Bad news, easily crashes. We're so used to letting go of the sticks if we get

into flight-trouble and the heli will land in it's place. Now you can't. If

you let go, it will keep on flying. (Straight into the wall!)Cry

   Just curious if the paint-scheme::spring throttle remote has any correlation

by us forum users here...

   BTW, for those of you following my battery case study, I'll have my

90-day follow-up out next week. It's all good plus 2 additional tips I've learned!

                                Safe and happy flying, all!

My two new 107 without the sping in the transmitter have the same black paint job and my first 107 that came with a sprung transmitter.

I am with you the unsprung transmitter can lead more crashes Surprised

The spring is a pain in the *um and I have no idea why they added it easily sorted here.

Yeah, my first one I just tried to let the spring go inside the thing in the remote, and I really had to rip it apart and screwed it up pretty good to get it out so it would work.

 

After that, being that all of mine have the internal springs, I just ripped em out with my multi-tool. Forget em. Most of the things with springs I have end up with them ripped out at some point.

 

Personally, the sprung controls cause more crashes because they're harder to fine-tune and keep in tune. Sure, when you do crash, you have to panic mash it down, and it's not ideal, but it's really good that they got rid of the spring.
