Time to buy a new flight control system....

The potentiometer for the rudders is shot.

It could be this. Theres a little round turning knob on the throttle column, next to that blue squishy button. Twist it till it hits about the middle, muck around with it in FS, it controls the rudder, and that's probably the problem, happened to me quite a lot.
