Default Dumb servo thingie question.

I don't know what this is. One came in the bag with my hardware for 4 servos.

The hole spacing is the same as the servos.

looks like part of the throttle stick ratchet...well,that's what it looks like to me. Take the back off the radio and look at the throttle stick assembly. Your unidentified object screws to the gimbal support and provide an "indent or ratchet" feel to the throttle stick. Your radio may already have it on...does the throttle feel "notchy"?

I think your right. Found a pic of a DX7 open, and it looks like it in the picture.

I KNEW someone was going to say that before I even posted that picture!!!! LOL

I was shoving the barrels in the grommets not thinking. As I was pushing in the last one it hit me. Servos were installed an hour after thaking the pic, but not before pulling the barrels out
