    Has anyone cracked open the P3 controller to tighten the springs on these sticks? I find them pretty loose for my taste. I've done that on my P2 - it was really easy. I don't want to tear into this until I've seen some others try it first! :)

    Thanks for the link! They are there, just by the silver screws. Good to see.

    Ok, I opened it up, futzed with the ribbon cable (the trickiest bit). BUT, the sticks are already at their "tightest", vis-a-vis the springs. They are at their maximum tension, which seems silly - you would think DJI would calibrate it to where you could tighten or loosen the springs at least a bit to taste.
    I'm sure someone could probably put new springs in, but I'm not motivated enough at this point to do that.
