The odds of fixing it are probably low. Sony, Microsoft and (especially) Nintendo all suffer from stick drift, there have been class action lawsuits against all three of them.

 

It's a fundamental flaw of resistive potentiometer based thumbsticks. The solution would be to use an alternative like hall effect, but that's rare for 2D thumbsticks.

agree with you

Ya, Hall Effect gimbals like on my higher end Spectrum radio control transmitters would be nice.  From Spektrum;

 

HALL-EFFECT GIMBALS
The NX10 transmitter's Hall-effect sensor gimbals offer long-lasting precision with an ultra-smooth feel that's conveniently adjustable from the front of the transmitter. Compared to traditional, potentiometer-style gimbals, these offer higher resolution, longer life, and greater durability.
