After five attempts on my X9503 I gave up. This transmitter along with my 11X has fine serrations on the half moon that the tension spring rides on. Using this tape from a previous post: tried single, double, and triple layers as well as smoothing the edges and face of the tension spring. As I tightened the throttle the serrations from the half moon pressed themselves into the tape. Very smooth action but felt like the ratchet spring some plank guys use was installed and became more pronounced after a couple of days.

Removed the tape, polished the spring with Dremal pad and compound, added triflow grease and the stickiness is gone.

Anyone had any luck with a JR radio, maybe with different tape?

Hell, lots of Helicopters. Lots. Airplanes and Quads too.
Unless this is my wife reading this, then just a couple.
