I am looking for an original "Devo 6s“ gimbal or at least a properly working Devo 6s- or Devo7e-potentiometer.
In my Devo 6s the appropriate potentiometer for gas/pitch is not centering very well.
I could not find a replacement part in www.
It‘ s urgently needed in Germany.

You might want to try and clean your potentiometer with DeoxIt D5. It cleans and restores potentiometers making them operate smoother and more reliability. It really fixed up the potentiometer on my Devo 10. You can find DeoxIT D5 at electronics parts suppliers and some electric guitar shops.

Did you bath the pot in this liquid or did you spray into this hole (See Photo)?
I think the pot cannot be opened.

I left the potentiometer in place and sprayed it from several angles while I moved the gimbal stick, it worked it's way inside the potentiometer Before I sprayed it the gimbal would not go to zero % throttle anymore and the throttle output was erratic and jumpy on the channel monitor. . While spraying it the throttle dropped to zero % within a few seconds, it felt smoother and the channel monitor showed a nice smooth change.

I bought a similar product in Germany and sprayed all pot ententes a couple of times while rotating the stick of the pot
And: It worked for my pot, too. Hopefully long enough.
I am happy with the result.
Thanks a lot.
