I recently bought a RC F model to replace the R4P advanced RC. It connects OK to the A/C and to Pix4D. The issue that I have is the controls sticks are both stepped ie they don’t return to the centre position automatically.
The only info that I have found on the forum relates to a phantom 3. Would this apply to the F model RC. I do like to know what I’m doing before I open it up. Thanks in advance
Regards

If, by "stepped" you mean that the sticks actually click in several positions on it's travel to one extreme or the other, that would indicate indexed throttle-type gimbals. That, and or, the return springs are either broken, slipped off, or removed by the previous owner.

Open er up and have a look.
