SPEKTRUM Tx "Roller" replacement

Unread post by retiredVTT » Tue Feb 12, 2013 5:20 pm

So just maybe I'm not the only one that dislikes the roller on the Spektrum Tx that is used for programming. (I believe I once heard young Jack D. tear a strip off the designer of this feature.)

In my case there are two reasons that I have trouble with this device....I am left handed, and it is setup for a right handed person; and secondedly I'm not that kind to my fingernails...and it does require a reasonable "nail" for fine adjustments.

So...enter the new revised "after-market roller"...! http://www.hobbypartz.com/88e-ac017-2-roller.html

You have to wonder what is different with this one...perhaps the raised portions are spaced further apart....don't know...!

I have used this site for rollers and upgraded metal trim tabs, they never break like the stock plastic ones
