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. 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!)
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!

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.
