new joystick issues

Post  speedy77 on Wed Jan 28, 2015 10:40 pm

I found out why I haven't been getting and kills recently.

When I got my new X55 I noticed that the throttle is very stiff making it rather awkward. There is a tension dial on the side so I turn this to loosen the tension as much as possible, with not much effect. I put it all down the fact it is new and will loosen up after some use. After a month it is still the same so I contacted satiek yesterday, who promptly said I need to return the throttle and stick for a replacement.

So after Thursdays event, I'll have to send the stick away and will be grounded until and replacement arrives, as i've already binned my old one Rolling Eyes

I having a bit of a nightmare with this atm. The stick and throttle are all packed and ready ago, but I can't send it until I get a RMA form, which I am still waiting for after various calls and emails. Evil or Very Mad

Sounds a bit naff, Speedy - don't they know there's a war on?

At least it's getting sorted now then.

I presume that as it's all packaged up you'll still be missing the event tonight?

Little update: I've been chasing them daily and I have been told it could take up to 10-14 working days from when they received the stick! Evil or Very Mad They've had the stick for 5 working days now. How difficult it is to just send a replacement is beyond me.

All better now, Speedy?

Or does it turn out that there was nothing wrong with the throttle and you're just limp wristed? Razz

Lol... why I oughta! Wink

So far so good...The throttle is far better, I can actually use it without the base lifting of the table. The feel of the twisty rudder is different though, and I had only just gotten used to the previous one. So I pranged a few spits on take off last night. More offline practice tonight is called for.
