  • Joystick problems

    Hello flight simulator peoplez,
    I would just like to know if joysticks wear out with regard to the gel on the rolli-ball at the bottom centre of the stick function. As I have had a microsoft sidewinder pro for about 3-4 years now and has been great but now every time I rotate the joystick to yaw or bank it completes the move instentanously for a number of seconds instead of moving slowly and smootly for however long I wish. Some people have suggested that time has taken its toll on the joystick.

    What do you guys think?

    Thanks in advance for any advice or assistance

    I've had my sidewinder precision pro for about 6 years now and it still works fine for me... Maybe yours had a defect?
