although this did not solve my problem, it is worth a try to reset the calibration settings stored in the windows registry.
These are the steps for it:
To recalibrate, first unplug the controller.
Go to start/run and type 'regedit'
The registry editor will have a list of folders on the left hand side. Go
down into the following folders in order.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (HKEY_CURRENT_USER if on VISTA)
Inside the Direct Input folder, delete any folder that begins VID_06A3.
Once done, close the editor.
Plug the controller back in and move all the
axes (including throttle) through their full range of movement 4 times.
Now go to control panel/game controllers/properties to see if there are any changes to the test screen?
If it helps you, it didn't do it for me ;) but I reckon it's worth a try

The Saitek joystick yoke used to work perfectly. It was only recently that I experienced the aileron drift!
I un-installed and deleted averything related to FS9 and then started to load FS9 and all the add ons etc. The yoke works perfectly again. I have no idea......!

This is a hardware defect , nothing to do with the drivers, software or the OS you are using in .
The position and movement of the control elements is recorded by a simple rotating potentiometer. The analogue signal from the potentiometer is converted to digital by a simple AD converter circuit inside it. If one of the control elements no longer reacts properly the first thing you must check is the corresponding potentiometer - open the unit, access the potentiometer and see if you can repair or replace it. Then check the status of the components on the control board and finally the wire connections between all of them - a wire might have been broken.
