The answer is to either go around is with a q-tip and some isoprypl alchohol rub the q tip around the joystick hole

If that doesn't work try to take an air blower to it to try to take out any dirt and debris

If all else fails you can replace it with this part however be aware that it does require soldering

You could either try cleaning the potentiometers in the stick with something like BW100 or isopropyl alcohol or just replace the stick. It kinda depends on the severity of the drift if cleaning it would work or if it needs a replacement, so see what works and I hope one of these ways fixes it.

Have a great day!
