Summary: Played DCS and Arma 3 with it and I have to say it is pretty nice to have. Precise enough to give you great control over your aircraft, which is a good thing, though with DCS I sometimes had issues with accidentally activating the afterburner. Easily fixed with default keys but you guys might want to add a little zone on the slider that shows where the burners would activate in FSX, DCS, etc.
Summary: Purchased extreme 3d pro several years ago and have never used it, Bought on line and didn't receive the software to run it and have been unable to figure out how to down load it on line from Logitech
Only buy if CD-software is included if no Internet

Summary: I am very happy with my purchase of this joystick. The low cost combined with four axes of movement, a hat switch, and a dozen programmable buttons makes this a truly great stick to use on a flight or combat sim. I love the precision with which I am now able to pilot my helicopters in Arma 3; and the for Flight Simulator X, it's a truly awesome control system for those just getting into simulators.
Summary: I recently got the Extreme 3D Pro and can't get the profiler to work. I have a windows 7 computer and the profiler only says it cant read a controller even when its plugged in!! I DOESN'T WORK!!!
Summary: I have been using these sticks since 2007 when I moved from console gaming to PC gaming. I wasnt very experienced with PCs except for some classes I had taken in high school. That means my fingers didnt work well enough on the keyboard to be competitive in FPS games. Enter the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro. I dont use it for flight sims; I use it for FPS gaming. I use it with my left hand for movement and other functions such as reload, sprint, crouch, etc.
Real world pilot feeling the "all in one solution"
13 November 2013
Summary: I am a real world pilot, I like to fly the planes. This joystick is "All in one = Rudder, Throttle and Stick" solution. It gives me power in my hand which controls all the primary and some secondary features without jumping to the 'Cockpit'. I can do hours of Pattern (circuit flying) or a Navigation from (Paris to Brussels or Frankfurt to Amsterdam). All good with the Logitech Magic Stick in my hand for a very reasonable price.
Summary: I read that this one loses his center quickly, I dunno.... maybe they talk about some other joystick? I have this one for, believe it or not, 4 yrs ! Still work, still playable, center is not like when it was new (but which one is, right?) in fact.... I want to replace him right now (that's the only reason I'm stumble on this page, cuz I'm looking for new one) with the very same one.
