Mine has an issue with the aileron channel not centering. It will start to flicker anywhere up to 14%. I wrote Horizon europe about this and the tech told me to disconnect the cable to the aileron pot and connect it again. I did and the problem went away.
One week later it reappeared, I repeated the procedure and put a bit of WD40 on the contact. This time it worked for 4 weeks. I did one last try and scraped the contacts a bit to make sure there was no oxide and making sure the connector was well seated. I will see how long it lasts this time. Next time it happens I will probably send it back.

So it seems the pot itself is not the issue but rather oxide forming on the connector.
