    I have almost the exact same problem the z rotation for rudders no longer detects things right i can have it in the middle but if i move the stick at all it goes to the right, mine still detects left but i have to turn it all the way to the side before it does....... PS to anyone looking for drivers for this for me everything else works fine on the joystick even the force feedback and i have tried it on xp, xp media edition, and vista business 32-bit, though wish i had the software it looks like it does alot more

There are two x sensor holes in the grip , one top one bottom, they control the force feed back gimbals in the base you need from time to time make sure they are clear just spray them with some alcohol base solution and give them i light probe with a tooth pick to make sure there is no gunk blocking up the holes .

Good luck.

There should be a calibration tool to configure the joystick.
You move the cursor to each of the corner and click the fire button and possibly the center position as well.
