Hendy Jawan’s response doesn’t even address ljnmc’s original question… Their issue was with the YAW axis, not the PITCH or ROLL axes!
They have a problem with the potentiometer located inside of the stick that detects twisting the stick clockwise and counter-clockwise. More likely than not, their problem can be fixed by following the guide posted by Reddit user ColinAndress, which can be found at https://www.reddit.com/r/hotas/comments/eqya5d/repairing_a_tflight_joystick_yawrz_axis/
The guide mentioned in Hendy Jawan’s first post will definitely come in handy if you plan on re-lubricating the ball joint, but is utterly useless when it comes to solving the YAW axis stuttering. This guide doesn’t even show you how to gain access to the potentiometer at fault, much less walk you through what the problem is and how to fix it… On top of that, their follow-up comment only offsets the calibration, completely ignoring the root cause of the problem and potentially introducing new problems.
-Again, if your problem is with YAW stuttering, not roll or pitch, then check out the guide at https://www.reddit.com/r/hotas/comments/eqya5d/repairing_a_tflight_joystick_yawrz_axis/
+Again, if your problem is with YAW stuttering, not roll or pitch, then check out the guide at https://www.reddit.com/r/hotas/comments/eqya5d/repairing_a_tflight_joystick_yawrz_axis/ If you’d rather avoid Reddit, you can find his step-by-step picture guide, with explanations, here: https://imgur.com/gallery/ob06FmA
I hope this helps, ljnmc!
