Default Futaba 18MZWC

Hello,
Sent in my 18MZ for complete check and replacement of outer Black plastic skin, once it was returned I find now that the right stick (elevator/aileron) sticks at the top of the travel and holds there until moved? This TX does have the heaver springs in it, so it there a concern here as I have never had this happen in any of my Futaba Radios?

Regards,
Steve

Whose heavier springs? Futaba or an aftermarket set?

Anything heavier than what Futaba sells which is not much, can actually damage the gimbals because of excess tension. It needs to go back to the service center but those guys may be really hard to get ahold of in the coming weeks as all of the various forms of the USA Nationals are starting.
