    Does anyone have recommendations for a 7th. channel lever? I'd rather not solder. Also, any recommendations for a throttle spring? Thank you.

    Got the 7th channel Shapeways lever today and the throttle spring w/o spring, of course. Gosh, how hard would it be to include the screw and spring??? Where did anyone find a screw? Local hardware store does not sell them that small. Has anyone just super glued it together? Thanks.

    I used a spare screw from a servo I had sitting around, the spring come out of an old pen, and even that got cut down a little.

    Shapeways only do 3d printing, they don't have any screws etc (unless some designed a 3d printed one, but it wouldn't be too strong lol)

    Got mine from http://www.Buzzflyer.co.uk-

    DJI Part P330 - Spare Part No 20 is a Phantom Spring Centred Throttle.

    The DJI Lever set for the 7th Channel has a metal spindle which is a bit more robust than the Shapeways ones.


    Edited to add 27.09.13 - Just fitted my DJI Self Centred Throttle Kit and 7th Chanel Lever Set and it was a doodle :D Wish I could say the same about the Firmware Upgrades :lol:

    Why is it called Channel 7 when it seems to be Channel 6 (X1)?

    A: For roll control (left/right)
    E: For pitch control (front/back)
    T: For throttle control
    R: For rudder control
    U: For Control Model Switch
    X1: For gimbal pitch control / For gain tuning
    X2: For D-Bus(S-Bus/S-Bus2 compatible) / For gain tuning / For IOC switch
    X3: ? - Not sure if that's a channel or an input for battery voltage measurements

    X3 pulls power from the PMU/PDB to power up the NAZA
