This is a NEW video of the complete disassembly / breakdown of the thrustmaster hotas warthog joystick flight controller. Mine had HORRIBLE stiction. This video explains why this is and how to fix the problem. If you have not replaced your grease. When you take it apart for the first time it will have red grease in it.

Lots of people are replacing with silicone grease but I have found that it does not hold up and you need something thicker that has a higher pressure rating. I have written multiple production experts and have found out that the grease I use is non reactive and plastic safe. It is cacium sulfonate based. the link to it will be below. USE A PLASTIC SAFE GREASE AND MAKE IT THICK. Synthetics are usually great.
