I just have ROTARY 1 mapped to ELEVATOR TRIM and my ROTARY 2 Mapped to AILERON TRIM. I increased the dead band first on the SAITEK software, then I tried it within the BGE controller window. Last night I had ditched the aileron for the elevator trim on ROTARY 1, and it worked like a charm. I was able to come in from a dive and shoot directly into a particular window in a depot offline with ease. Never was able to shoot with that much precision before, so either it has gotten worse, or it has always been that way and I am now at a point in my game that I notice. So this evening I opened both controllers, and it looks nothing like the videos I am seeing online. There were no crimped or frayed wires or even a hint of dust or debris. Now, I notice that it is only happening when I have the joystick plugged into the throttle. I take it out... works perfect. Plug it in... drifts. I have tried the deadzone, but the problem is that it pulls to the extreme of either side randomly, so no deadzone setting affects it. It does not require input on my part to jolt except to recenter the dial. BTW, thank you all for your help.
