Default Spektrum NX10 throttle not smooth

I am just getting back into the hobby after 30 years and got a new NX10 a couple of days ago. The throttle gimbal just doesnít seem smooth to me. It takes a small amount of pressure to move it and then it moves all at once making it hard to keep a level hover. Iím not saying there is a lot of drag but my old Century 7 radio is smother on the throttle. I tried to adjust the tension screw but it doesnít seem to make a difference. Maybe Iím doing it wrong? Is this just the way it is or am I not doing something right in the adjustment procedure? Thanks.

That's the way spektrum radios are. There is a thread on modifying the dx9 throttle and the same applies to the nx series. You can also try greasing the tension plate inside the radio,if your comfortable disassembling the radio I would do the teflon tape mod.

I adjusted the tension on mine a little and it’s much smoother than my DX9 ever was

With my nx6 no matter what tension I set it was still sticky. A little grease fixed mine

The NX6 has different gimbals than the NX10

The gimbals donít have anything to do with the strap that applies tension to the throttle stick

I just got the nx10. The throttle is OK, but the tension on the other sticks are more than I like. I've backed the tension off several turns . The tension is still more than I like. Anyone know the limit on the number of turns that can be made on the adjustment.

The whole setup is different from the DX / NX 6-8. More like the IX20 from what I’ve read in the RCG thread. Anyways my throttle stick is much improved over my DX9. Although I flew my 9 with no mods without issue. The cyclic stick was tighter than I’m used to, like posted above. But was able to adjust it to my liking no problem.

I just assume now that any new radio will benefit from a Teflon mod. Iíve done the Teflon mod on each and every single radio Iíve owned over the past several years with very noticeable collective stick smoothness improvement. I consider the Teflon Mod the ďgreat equalizerĒ of collective sticks.

The tension screw will hit the tx housing when you move the stick before the screw will fall out. That will define the limit.
