Tgy 9x: Sticky Throttle fix

Hi All,

Something that I found a bit annoying from the start:

The throttle stick on my Tgy 9x (flashed to er9x) felt a bit sticky (mechanically speaking).
That lead to more 'jumpy' throttle control.

I opened it up before, loosening the friction screw on the blade spring that is underneath.
Also tried lubricating,
Both did not help.

So yesterday I opened it again and did some gentle sideways pushing on the entire throttle / rudder assembly.
That worked, the stickiness is gone, smooth throttle movements, much more subtle control!
Apparently the stickiness came from rubbing against the side on the enclosure, not from the friction spring.
Another annoyance gone:)
