I propped up the stick, so the button surface was as horizontal as possible, dabbed enough Acetone on the gluesurfaces to keep them moist, waited for a bit to let the Acetone work, while keeping to ad small amounts of Acetone to keep moist, then carefully placing the new top on the button and press hard for a while.
The most important thing is to be patient and not move stuff around until the Acetone has evaporated and the bond has set.
Both will get the buttons on top treatment avoiding the mistakes I did with the first one.
One will be a right hand version, to replace my CH FlightStick Pro and the other one will be a lefty and get an extension, so I can use it as a center stick.
I think that the biggest challenges at this point will be the extension, as I wish to retain the twist and maybe make it lockable. The next is the center chairmount, as I have no idea about how I want to do it. I may end up cutting of the sides of base and rearrange the PCB’s in a new box. Well. We will see.
Is it possible to merge the thread below into this one?
At the time I didn’t know how to search for my older threads and I think that it belongs here.
