DX6i Left Stick Self Centering Mod: Success

Post by dubbl-a » Tue Jul 21, 2015 1:03 pm

I had a DX6i for some time now and I've been wanting to use it for a crawler application. But like a lot of people, I want the left stick to self center and I was finding it difficult to source the parts to do so.
After opening the case and starring at it for a while the idea hit me. A few return springs and some servo screws and this just might work...and it did! The end result works just like the right side but is a little stiffer and makes a small amount of noise from the springs I used but doesn't interfere with any other radio functions.
I'm sure this simple solution has been done before but I didn't see it anywhere so I figured I'd share my experience.
Have a look. :)
