    Just wanted to share - I fitted the the throttle lever upgrade from Shapeways at the weekend.
    http://www.shapeways.com/model/1148750/ ... Box-search
    It turns your v1 Tx into the new style that have the throttle level auto-centre when you let it go.

    It was a breeze to install once I had located a suitable spring to use (my local model shop helped with that). I find that I really like the auto-hover when I let the stick go, makes her much easier to fly.

    cheers.

    I just used a spring from a pen :)

    It's actually a little tighter than the other side, but stops me from gaining or losing height while rotating :)
