Help! VKB Gladiator (non pro) Springs

Recommended Posts

The X-axis spring of my VKB Gladiator Mk I, non pro, broke in half mid flight this evening. 

 

My warranty has long since run out, and while the cost for replacement is low ($5 USD), the shipping is a whole other matter ($21 USD).  I can't justify spending somewhere probably around ~$40CAD (after taxes, S&H) for a $5 spring without looking elsewhere first.

Does anybody know more about this?  Is #10 the tension value?

I just received my MCG Pro today and with it another bag full of springs.  If you know the default spring number installed with your Mk I, drop me a pm and I'll mail you a couple, gratis.

Probable is less strong than springs used in PRO CAM gimbal, ASK for measures in VKB forum.

 

Or take measure of this spring and order an similar in local manufacturer:
