This is great information and it is so awesome to see the all-knowing Sanni rendering assistance.

I have a question for you about ceramic grease. Tamiya and some others make it for plastic gear parts, especially for RC cars. Some of us here swear by it for our OEM sticks. What are your thoughts about ceramic grease and whether your teflon coated sticks could benefit (or be harmed) by it?

Ah yes, i've heard of the ceramic grease but not used it myself.
I just ordered a small tube of the stuff to try out, it certainly sounds like a good lubricant. Is it messy? Like white or black in colour?

Personally I've always used silicone grease. I blend it with silicone oil to get the right consistency since most silicone greases can be a bit thick.

The Tamiya grease is white, with the consistent of a facial cream. Very easy to use and control, and it seems to have given my sticks great protection. I suspect it would be fine for application with your sticks (may give the teflon more life), but can't say for sure.

Was worried it might be white and a bit messy. I'll try it and see if it's worth it.

Well, I just completed a pretty epic module! :dance:

I'll leave this here...

...and let it speak for itself...

Feeling good about the progress tonight, I'm working my way through the niggles and gotchas in the assembly process and able to return to the earlier modules to maximize their potential. Armed with the new knowledge I'm consistently able to knock down the deadzone wiggle and improve feel each time I re tackle an older module.

-

This particular stick feels smooth as butter, the mapping is bang-on and the deadzone figures aren't a joke. It doesn't budge!
I'll do a video of the wiggle if anyone wants to see proof, but there's nothing to see. It's like it's superglued in place. :)

Let the bidding begin! ;) lol

I discovered this through Reddit and had to create an account just to keep up with this thread. Seriously fantastic work, and I can't wait to see how this all turns out. I will definitely be willing to buy some when you get to a finalized version.

If everything was recreated in metal, gimbals, gears, bottom and top housing, spring trim, etc, It would be really something.
