I have a Realflight G2 that’s about 3 years old.

When I fly, I normally have the “Visual Transmitter” shown on the Screen.
Here I can see that the computer gets a different stick signal than I give…..the stick jerk!!

I think the potentiometer is broken/bad….
We have tried to open the potentiometer, and give som “repair-spray” (some kind off electronic especially for potentiometer) it did help for some time…but now it is bad again!!!

My question:
Were can I get some new potentiometer?

The ones I have found don’t fit in the joystick devise and the “trim”-funktion!!

Good question. Did you try contacting Futaba? I think they make that controller. Is it hard to get the cleaning fluid into it? Is it a sealed unit? If so, I have had a lot of luck with drilling 2 holes in the sealed pot case (one to allow fluid in, the other to take fluid and gunk out). Good luck!

Just send it in they will replace it for $25 It's not worth the hassle of getting the pots out without breaking some plastic

Good call Doug! I figured it would be pretty painless. Besides a lot of the cleaners that do a good job on POTS wreak havoc on plastic.

P.S. Wish I was in Naples!
