Throttle return spring

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hey guys looking for some help.

I just picked up a new Reedy 121Vr and really have no clue how I'm going to put a throttle return spring onto it. Any one done it? or for that matter do I really need it? Any help would be appreciated.

I have used these for years on many, many different motors. Have not used them on the Reedy but can not see why they would not work. DYN6640 Horizon Hobby

lots of ways to do it. heres one:

my favorite trick is to remove the grub screw from the locking collar/ball stud on the carb and replace with with an m3 cap head screw (maybe m3 X 6 or m3 X . then you can use more common rubber bands that you can find at office supply places. wrap the rubber band around the cap head screw, stretch it around the back of the carb, and then around the other side to the ball stud. snap on the ball end for the throttle and you're golden.
to answer the question 'do i really need it'... i'll just say this:
My very first trip out to break in my 1st 8th scale nitro cost me a v-spec and another $300.00 worth of repairs to my Kyosho (at a time when the north american distributorship was in ruin). Literally, without a single doubt, a 3 cent rubber band and the knowledge of how and WHY to install it would have made the difference. My battery popped out of the battery holder and the carb vibrated open because the servos no longer had power applied. it ran away at full speed across a parking lot.
