    I've always thought the sticks on my P2V+ TX were ultra sensitive when moving them compared to my Spektrum DX6i TX (which I use for my Blade Quad and Heli)
    On the P2V+ when pushing the throttle up right to the top - or the right stick up for forward pitch I find it tricky to keep the stick exactly straight from drifting a tiny bit left or right which makes the Phantom slightly yaw or roll (depending on which stick I'm moving)

    I know it's only a tiny thing but is there a way to "tighten up" the sticks a little so they are more defined in their movement path?

    These three videos (especially the first show this)

    I think you can adjust spring tension in the controller which might help.
    The P2V+ gains and firmware make it seem to react sluggish if you also have (for example) a Phantom One.

    I've opened up the TX (had to be very careful as there's not much room to move around until you disconnect the USB port and battery connector cables) and adjusted both spring tensions by gently turning the two silver screws on each stick tensioner clockwise as far they'll go.

    It seems a little "firmer" now on both sticks so I guess that's as much as I can do.

    Thanks but the P2V+ TX has slightly different spring tensioners to the one in the Youtube video you linked to. I looked around for a P2V+ video but couldn't find one. I think the two silver screws on each stick (as in the photo) are the ones to tighten. I turned all four of them gently clockwise as far as I could (I think that's the right way)
