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 ().
Can I get it here and send it to you?
dunno, anybody selling nyogel over there? I’d only need the small tube (10g).
100g is £26 + vat…maybe split it between 4 of us
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?
No, not for this slew mod.
The grease is for the ball in the stick and the slides in the throttle.
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.
Ah the TM stick base itself?
Got confused there thinking the slew mod needed it somehow
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.
