I am now 100% sure my problem as described above is my Saitek Pro yoke, (white noise). I swopped it for an old Logitech Freedom 2.4 joystick of mine and with sensitivity at -70% and dead zone at 5% I control the aircraft smoothly. What is strange is that the yoke work perfectIy in FSX. Will check if I can repair it.
I followed your advice and opened the yoke and clean the pots with cleaner and it solved the “noise”. I also did the rubber band mod and the yoke is 100% better. I can use it now again and make small inputs that I could not have done before the cleaning.
The issue is that they use the same XBox thumbstick logic for joysticks and yokes.
Anything more than 25% input on any axis gets increased gets increased to the point where it just becomes on/off unless you use -70% then all fine control is lost unless you go over 25% but at least its controllable.
