Yup, I figured as much.
Look at the 3 solder joints above the Flotilla text on the left. Two of them are connected together- they shouldn’t be. This happens sometimes when the solder wave isn’t behaving itself… well it literally sloshes a big wave of solder onto the underside of the board and relies on the tendency of solder to cling to the metal pads, so it’s not always completely precise.
This means the joystick connection is constantly being shorted to 5V, so it will always read 1000 no matter where the stick is positioned. :(
Drop us an email at email@example.com, or a forum PM to me with your address, and we’ll get you a replacement Joystick in the post!
It’s actually a really, really easy fix ( a dab with a soldering iron ) and should have been noticed in testing! Sorry about that.
