Problems assembling the Thrustmaster T Flight HOTAS


Recommended Posts

Hello

 

I have read, that greasing the resistors on a joystick will positively affect its longevity, so I have tried disassembling my Thrustmaster T Flight HOTAS. And, of course, now I am having problems putting it back together.

 

The joystick handle has a spring, which puts the flip into its default position when no pressure is applied. And I have no clue where and how it should be attached to.

 

Here is the sprig:

attachment.php?attachmentid=104477&stc=1&d=1410680896

 

And here are the parts of the handle, apparently the ends of the spring should go into one of these details inside:

attachment.php?attachmentid=104478&stc=1&d=1410680896

 

Can someone please help me - flying without rudder is no fun :-(

 

P.S. I haven't managed to grease the resistors - the circular thingie witch should be greased is actually inside the box which holds the resistor and I see no way of getting grease there.

I asked on the Russian forum and got help :-)

On the photo I did it wrong and a guy has drawn a oicture of how it should be done right:

This is a view from above with the bottom circle being the joystick, and the upper circle is that square thing on it.

 

Essentially - the ends of the metal spring should be done the other way around - opposite to the photo I posted in that topic.

If this is still unclear I'll try to formulate this differently - my technical English is not that good...
