Well I've been using my FX propel just over 3 months and today the rudder cable broke. I replaced it with a 1/16" cable which is slightly larger than the original. I have no confidence that this one will last any longer due to the way native designed the control wheel. I really hope Native comes up with a fix for this issue as I've been hearing a lot of complaints with the Slayers and now the FX's.
Native is starting to get a lot of unhappy customers over this.

Turn the control pulley 180 degrees so it is facing the back, then run the cables around the pulley so they have more contact area. This was suggested in another thread and seems to work nicely.

I will give this a try if it's breaks again. I saw that same post after I replaced my cable.
