Default 12x gimbal springs?

anybody else think the springs are to firm in the 12x? i read and adjusted per the manual, but with out being able to remove the rear cover easily, I do not want the screw to fall out.

even backed out around ten turns from stock, they seem stiff compared to my 10sxII and x9303.

any comments welcome.

thanks Kevin

i didn't notice that as much as i did the fact the sticks aren't round they are 8 sided and feel odd.

I noticed teh strange feel as well, I changed them out to the anodized blue sticks that are the same as 9303 stock sticks, a little better feel.

I wish they were stronger springs! I even asked for the heavy duty springs when I sent it in for the firmware upgrade....no joy.

Yeah, I tightened the throttle spring all the way down and felt wanting more!!! I think they are a little too soft.

Ditto for me. I was initially thinking my 12X was more sensitive due to the higher resolution but now think it was due to the soft sticks. I've also cranked in the springs.

Get some longer sticks from Dreamworks, they give more leverage.
