i had some stutter in my pitch control, and it was squeaking. i regreased the joystick, it lessened the squeaking and the stuttering at lower resistance. didn’t solve it entirely. used silicone lubricant, spray type. i hope it helps

+edit:
+
+i fixed my stuttering pitch control completely. [https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Thrustmaster+T+Flight+Hotas+4+Spring+Replacement/98620|follow this guide] until step 6,
+
+* turned the joystick upside down & did not take out the spring nor clean off the red grease, but instead applied more, used silicone lubricant, spray type., .
+* sprayed the rails (where the joystick makes contact with the housing), once when joystick is neutral and at then at the 8 directions. (total 16 times)
+* when you put the cap back on, i moved the joystick to negative pitch (the direction where it was stuttering), and screwed on the cap.
+* before i reassembled the thing, plugged the joystick on to the computer and stuttering is gone.
