Bob, if it's going back into a Spektrum radio, it matters which one. There are at least 3 different mounting configurations, and several different wiring configurations.

If it's going into one of the modern radios (DX7S, DX8, DX9, DX18) then you can take either centering or not, since it's just a matter of turning a screw to change from one to the other.

Its parts are going into a dx5e to center the throttle stick and spring load it. I have two I want to change. I tried the airtronics
parts because they are similar but the cam lobe is in a different position on the 5e so the stick does not center correctly and sticks in full throttle.

I don't think you'll find anything other than DX5e parts that will fit properly. The good news is that there are boatloads of DX5e's that people are using the modules from, and they're stuck with the mechanics. You might look around ebay.

I did order one of the dx5e's that someone removed the board from. Wondering what they are doing with the boards.

Auuugh. I see people selling used DX5es on eBay for $65 plus $10 shipping or similar. They were only $60 new to begin with. At least a few people are selling new ones at less that the original cost. Definitely pays to shop around.

They use the RF modules so they can have DSMX in their DIY radios.

Dx5e


Got mine for $15. And shipping. Pricy for springs and levers but it is better than $60.

Transmitter


Got the parts trans today. Now I have a centering spring loaded throttle on my dx5e. It was kind of a pain to attach the spring but persistence prevails. It took me about 15 minutes to get it installed and all buttoned up. I wouldnt want to do it for a living without better tools, getting the spring on the lever is not fun.

throttle trim problems


Has anyone had the same problem with a spectrum radio that the trim button didn't work and what did you do to correct it. I have a parts radio that I have already removed the circuit boards for the trim switches but have not installed them in the transmitter that the throttle trim isn't working yet. The guy from horizon said the switch was bad but could the problem lie elsewhere? When I try to set the trim, It makes the tone that the rest do. ???
