someone has been selling your design over ebay for a while it seems, or is it you?

Thanks for the heads up. That's not me. Im so surprised when people do this. It wouldn't have taken much effort to model their own design.

No problem. It feel super dirty that some people are such leeches. You can claim for your IP rights in that link.

Another non-related thing here, do you happen to have specs for the spring? I am interested in replacements - i just got a 2nd hand set that is still in mail and was thinking about ordering a replacement to be on hand when it is needed.

Unfortunately I do not have spring specs. That was one of the things I remember looking in to when I wanted to spruce up my x-52. It was quite a few years ago.

ok this gives me confidence in the product as it you havent had the need to take a look at it in several years :)

It's held up well.

I'm new into 3D print. I have to choose between cm, mm and inch, which one is the correct measure?

Thanks for this design... I've printed 4 on a bed and scaled them to 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 and full height, with the view that I can reduce the tension or stack them and increase it a bit, I scaled in RepetierHost after loading the STL and before Slicing... thanks for the design!

Does it do anything for that sticking area that you have to overcome with a lot more force to break the resistance?

I haven't experienced what you are describing on my x52. By design this will increase the resistance on the spring, so I'm not sure if it will fix your issue. It's a quick print, see if it helps.

I made one and tested it in the new flight sim! Love it!

I hope it worked out as well for you as it does for me. I am a little skeptical that the spacing will work perfect for everyone. So far so good?
