    This may seem like an odd question but I am used to flying a Phantom 1.1.1 and am about to order an FC40.

    I am curious if the sticks on the transmitter auto center like the ones on the 1.1.1 transmitter?

    Thanks,
    Tommy

    Hi Tommy, my FC40 is 6 to 7 weeks old now. It's the 5.8GHz Transmitter with 2.4GHz FC40 camera version (the latest I think). Yep the sticks center...

    BTW You do know you can remove the centering, or make it stiffer on the Joy Sticks.
    I used to do alot of RC scale Boating with a boat with a controlable pitch prop, and managed to track down a shop that sold the arm, Spring and adjusting screw as a kit
    to make both sticks center on an old radio I had.

    Thanks.

    KimBrown, since I posted this I ran across a post somewhere that a spring kit was sold to make old transmitters auto center so I think you could probably remove the springs inside but don't know for sure without looking inside.

    I prefer to have them auto center thanks. Only on my Diesel copters I prefer for them not to be.
