Default New Gimbals dx18 gen2

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone could recommend some gimbal ends for the dx18 gen2. Ideally looking for wider stick ends as I am a thumb flier. Also I was wondering if they were 3mm?

Use the Align Trex 450 skid nuts on the ends of the sticks.

I expect they would thread on okay. The threaded ends of the Spektrum sticks are all the same (I think).
My problem was getting the knurled ends of the sticks shorter so there wasn't as much distance for my thumb to travel. That's why I used the Align skid nuts.

Remove the existing ends and measure the shaft (you probably already have m3 nuts on one of your helicopters - use one to verify the stick diameter)
