    Hey guys I bought a 2nd hand wavebird a few months ago from EB, I noticed straight away that the analogue stick is really floppy and shit when turning right but its pretty good when pushing it left.

    All I want to know is there a way I can fix the analogue stick or am I stuck with it?

    I've got a triwing screwdriver so opening it isn't' a problem.. (I've already attempted that although and didn't know what to do so quickly closed it back up)

    If I remember correctly the analog stick is near impossible to replace. The C-stick is fairly straight forward, it was just a few wires to desolder and resolder but the analog stick is part of a plastic housing that spans the length of the circuit board.

    I can not remember specifically as I have since thrown out all of the old wavebirds I had that I cannibalized for parts but the open wired controller I have is as I described above.

    You could salvage the analog stick from a normal GC computer and stick it in the wavebird. You'll just need basic soldering skills.

    Umm who would cannibalize a $30 controller USED? for parts for a $5 controller... honestly what are they serving in your fantasy world?


    And disassembled mine and no you not gonna be able to swap it out piece of plastic is covering a lot of the soldering points

    lol


    OK, the only other GC controller i have is a shitty 3rd party one that just recently likes to give me connection errors while racing online in mario kart.

    I dont think the 3rd party analogue stick will fit onto the wavebird.. or am i wrong?
