Question about Saitek ST290 Pro PC Flight Stick [ PS23 ] (117054)

Open Question

ST290 Pro internals

I'm looking for any info on the Saitek ST290 Pro PCB. Wiring diagrams for switches, connections etc. I've noticed that it has several more connection points (J2-J5) that look like additional switches or pots could be added. I'd love to know what they're for. Anyone got any inside info?

I'm planning to remake the stick to suit my particular application. I just like to tinker.

SOURCE: Saitek st290 Lube

I'm going to assume that you're refering to the central spring slider on the stick. The spring follower at the base has to slide up and down the shaft to provide spring pressure as the stick moves away from center. This plastic follower has a tendancy to gall the plasic it slides over on the stick shaft resulting in jerky stick movement. You can solve this problem with any wax based lubricant. I used a chapstick, but there are sprayable wax lubes that would be easier to apply, you can find them at hardware stores. Be careful with oils. Plastics are made from oil and the wrong ones will disolve it. WD-40 is a safe oil but use it sparingly and only on the shaft. Avoid using penetrating or cutting oils, they will disolve the plastic. You should test any oil on a foam coffee cup.
The stick's internal gimbals are already well greased and don't need relubed and the throttle is supposed to be a little stiff. I've had good results with both WD-40 and waxes. The waxes are a little harder to apply but last much longer

SOURCE: Trigger button on Saitek ST290 is stuck in fire position

I've disassembled the ST290 to get at it's internals. It wasn't easy. It's not something I would recommend and finding the exact same lever switch to replace the damaged one would be tricky, not to mention soldering in the new switch and all.
I have seen the ST290 at Radio Shack stores for less than $20. You might be less frustrated just getting a new one.

You didn't say what game you are using this in. Many flight sims allow you to setup controls more specifically and to your liking. I would look for such a menu in game and reverse that axis.
