Spektrum DX8 - lighter gimball springs


Spektrum radio user - DX8 gen 1.

If you find the stock gimball sticks - springs overally stiff and have experienced the issue with the springs dropping off if you loosen the adjusters to far (with a pita that is) then here is the cure !

fit 4 by taranis springs, you need to order four of the below (even though it shows 4 springs in the picture the price is per spring.......)

springs is a fraction shorter so doesn't drop off the mounts at the loosest tension setting, and the spring is softer, feel is noticeable lighter and smoother, and now closer to my Devo 10 stick in feel = NICE
