Cable connector is not snug. Joystick does not fully connect to thrott

I have had two X52 Pro Throttle/Joystick combos. Both failed the same way...the cable connector on the joystick becomes a slack fit, which apparently prevents proper connection and communication to the throttle unit. I took a look inside and it appears that female connector would have to be replaced, and by soldering above my skill level. Any alternatives?

"it is unfortunate design really.

It wiggles alot.

I recommend to open both and re-solder the wires they don’t hold too well in pcb. Mine were not properly soldered.

Don’t worry it is not hard soldering.

Just make a note of wire colors."
