FYI, for those looking for upgraded TMWH slew control...

Now all my HOTAS need are an extension and a grease job. Too bad the grease the internet reccomends (nyogel 767a) is not available in these parts (:netherlands:).

#62

Can I get it here and send it to you?

#63

dunno, anybody selling nyogel over there? I’d only need the small tube (10g).

#64

100g is £26 + vat…maybe split it between 4 of us :joy:

#65

yeah and postage & packing. Dunno. I mailed a local lubricant retailer (lubist?) with the spec sheet for that stuff asking for an alternative, but I received zip for answer so far. My stick sticks, so for doing finer stuff such as refuelling and landing it would be a great boon.

It’s ancient, I bought it 2nd hand and I’ve used it a lot myself, so its allowed to have some so called “sticktion”.

To you have any friend who has a car workshop?
Like, a mechanic?
They all have, usually, some great ceramic grease.
Worth a try…

I use white lithium grease. Also fine sandpaper in 400, 800 & 1000 grit to smooth off the mold parting lines.

Congrats on your slew control buy. It is a great mod!

Just curious, why do you need special grease? Not for this slew mod, surely?

#69

No, not for this slew mod.
The grease is for the ball in the stick and the slides in the throttle.

#70

Not for this mod.

The grease is used if you decide to take apart the joystick to get rid of some of the “stickiness” of the unit in stock form.

#71

Ah the TM stick base itself?

Got confused there thinking the slew mod needed it somehow :slight_smile:

#72

Correct sir!

#73

I can attest that it works really good. I regrease every 6 to 8 months. Also remember to move the stick around before you fly. My room is cold so I need to do that. Loosens up the grease.
