Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT


#1

I have put this joystick in my Qanba and working great with diagonals but there is a lot a deadzones.
Is there any option to have less deadzone with this stick?

This should be in the other thread, but Sanwa JLF has long throw. You can buy a Kowal oversized actuator to reduce both throw and deadzone, or buy a paradise shop oversized actuator. Your choice. Whatever you do, at least go with a LS-55 spring or a JLF 2lb spring on top of it. An octagonal gate with a Kowal actuator is ok for people new to customizing a stick.

The best bet is buy a LS-40 (Square gate only) or LS-56 (octagonal gate preferred) if you want short throw and tight engage, but this will take some work. You might want to mod a secondary stick with one so you can see if you like it or not.
