Default JR 10X stick change

I have just ordered a JR10X and want to chagne the sticks to the long ones. However it appears that to do so, I will need to remove the old ones at the root/gimbal. Has anyone done this before?? I would appreciate knowing the right method to carry this out without damagin my new radio.

THanks

It takes about a minute. You loosen the lock screw in the center of the stick with a ball driver. Then unscrew the stick, screw the new one on in a postion you like and tighten the lock screw with the ball driver.

Staggerwing, thanks, but thats the method for the standard sticks which come in 3 sizes. There is another stick which is much longer, and needs to be changed at the gimbal/root itself, this si the one I am considering. Any ideas?? Anyone?

I have these very stckis on my 10x. They screw on in place of the original sticks. They lock down by tightening the top part of the stick. I did not have to remove anything from the gimbal itself.

LaCerne,

Do you actually insert the knurled end into the old sticks?? If by some chance you have a picture it would help. Thanks for the info .

I just unscrewed the new larger sticks from the knurled pieces they came on and put them on the existing transmitter sticks after removing the original sticks.

Just for everyones general info, I managed to change the sticks completely. I noticed that one of the stickes on my TX had some of the knurled section exposed, so I tried to pull it out without any tools. It comes of relatively smoothly, not easily, but not so tight that you worry about damaging the gimbals. Inserting the new ones, you just need to be careful not to force them in, as you need to align the knurled part with the gimbal, but can't see the pattern. Press slightly, and if its tight, rotate the stik a little and try again. It should slide in smoothly.

I just flew with it today, It was AWESOME. JR really did a great job with this radio.
