Summary: If you need an inexpensive or easily usable flight stick for extended hours of play and don't mind a couple compromises, this stick will be just fine as a workhorse. It gets the job done.
Pros: It's an easy to use stick, simple to set up, good for beginners. Definitely comfortable considering the ergonomic handle, and all of the buttons except one are well placed. The heavy base suits it well, but requires a lot of desk-space to use. The throttle level is actually intelligently designed...
Cons: It's pretty low-quality in terms of construction feels plasticy because it's construction is almost exclusively plastic. That is rather expectant. There's a about half a centimeter of wiggle-room in the neutral position, which is not good. the throttle lever, while well-placed, is awful for fine ...
Summary: Bought this joystick hoping to set up keyboard functions on it. That was not possible. Joystick tests out fine but cannot setup profile for buttons. Not to happy with this advertised product. Should come with drivers or better instructions.
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
Summary: Bought joystick mainly to fly jets in BF3. Unit is well-built and feels good to use but requires time to set up because software support is lacking. Must be prepared to manually configure all buttons for each game since it does not come with any predefined profiles that work out of the box. Ok..
Pros: Good Grip, Solid construction
Cons: Software lacks predefined profiles for games
Summary: I bought this with the intent to use with BF3, but there are conflicts with this joystick and the belkin game controller that I am using, so i am unable to use it at the moment. Would probably work fine otherwise.
Pros: Excellent construction for the very cheap price.
Cons: Throttle control is a little weird to use. Software hasn't helped me set up BF3 correctly. Still cannot get the axis sensitivity that I need compared to using the mouse. I've pretty much stopped using it since I've bought it. Hopefully I'll be able to find something to use it for in the future. I...
Summary: In the genre of first person shooters (FPS), Ground Pounders from Castle Wolfenstien to Modern Warfare 2 have been the mainstays of game publishers.That's all good and fine but I need to FLY!I've been hooked from the time I first dropped two quarters into the Star Wars Arcade Game back in the 80s.
Summary: I bought this joystick looking for something that could tolerate my hours of flight simming. It worked for the first few months, but then started to lose its calibration. It also became INSANELY sensitive to movement input. Fortunately, I had an extended warranty for it.
