    Hi Abdulla, I think it is the same as mine which is a DX9 gen1, turn the RH screw (looking from the back of the TX) clockwise until the stick becomes tight then back it off until you gt the desired tension.

    If that didn't work for me I would drop the back off the Tx to see what is going on, maybe the screw has been screwed all the way out at some point.

    I suspect you are trying to tighten it with the spring, which will not work on the throttle. You need to tighten the strap on the throttle.

    I'm not sure what you mean. Yes, you will pull one of the square rubber blocks out of the back of the Tx behind the stick you are wanting to adjust. If you are adjusting the left stick, it will be the one on the right when looking at the rear.

    The throttle is not weird by any means... it uses friction to change the tension on it. All of the other channels use springs for their tension since they need to center back when released.

    Which mode your TX is in determines which stick/channel is used for what purpose... Planes, heli's, multirotors etc all use the same mode that you've selected or that the TX comes setup with... they don't change unless you change the mode you are using.

    Well go figure, he must have been adjusting the grub screw in the middle of the stick itself.
    Totally missed that one.
