Question about Guillemot Top Gun Flight Control System (001-0004-FCS) Joystick
Hi, this is a very common problem with people who use those types when they get used alot the ball it sits on wheres and then it dont sit properly causing the problem you are having.
The problem is as the parts a plastic they never last that long anyway as they tend to ware all the same expecialy if you are playing the kind of games where you are moving the stick rapidly putting pressure onto the plastic ball at the bottom.
They last longer if your just playing basic games with basic movement but who wants to play them games i know i dont. lol
The problem you have is that you cant get any spare parts for these unless you manage to get a second hand one that dont work as long as it has not got the same problem as yours then you could replace the actual joystick part and put it into your base.
It isnt to hard to do but thats the only way your going to get it repaired.
Their is no where you can buy parts from to repair these as they never made them to be repaired, if say a button stopped working then you could repair that yourself without parts it would just be a case of cleaning ,or soldering wires back on.
But as your problem is with the stick itself their is nothing you can do to improve the problem.
Unless you can get a faulty one of ebay or other auction sites the only option you have left is to replace for a new one.
Its just because the plastic on the joystick parts get stresses then this is causing the grinding you get in and you should also notice that the joystick part is alot looser than it was when you first had it its all just part of the wear and tear of these devices. They are put under so much stress by people playing intense games that they just cant cope with it.
As for buying a new one i couldnt even advise you on the best one to buy as you will get the same problem over time with all of them the problem is they are not made to be repaired they are just throw away after use witch is bad when they could be repaired if you could buy the parts.
They dont do the parts because for you to pay someone to do the repair it would cost more than its worth witch dosnt help the people who are able and willing to repair themselves as we just cant get the parts new, if your lucky you might pick one up of auction site that has broken buttons etc but this is the only way your getting parts.
Sorry i couldnt give you good news but they just dont make them like they use to i remember on the old computers like amstrad cpc and zx spectrum we used to give those joysticks a right beating and they just went on and on but todays are just thrown away.
Let me know if you need further assistance ok
