Summary: The Throttle control is to small and not in a good location on the Joystick. The different buttons are OK, but for use in Flight Simulator, they are not in a good location. Overall performance is OK, but not exceptional. I feel that the price is not consistant with the expectations of the Joystick. I expected more.
3rd Logitech 2.4 Cordless i have used, lost responsivness
J. McDaniel, Amazon
29 October 2005
Summary: This is the third one that i have gotten, each time from a different supplier, i really like the cordless function but even that can get bothersom. For example, if your sitting on the runway for awhile, or holding a straight and level flight pattern, and you dont touch it for a certain amount of time, it goes into "stand-by" or something, which can get very annoying when you go to bank left and it doesnt respond, so you have to start pushing buttons or something.
Summary: Man I was So excited to get this , Took it out pluged it up Worked nicely.. had a slight leftwards pull that seemd to go away after i used the Clear clabrations utility I got from Logitec, however on day 3 it stoped working, would not connect to its reciever just sat there and Blinked ... So I said ok no problem ill go and look up the supprt information at logitec.. no help there , closest thing I could find for an answer was the batteries were going bad.. nope ..
Summary: This joystick is advertised as compatible with Mac systems, specifically OS 8.6 or later. In reality, it is incompatible with System 10 and barely compatible with system 9 since it has no applicable software for Mac. The advertising is wrong and should be changed to "Not for Mac, PC only". Very frustrating.
Summary: Slick exspensive joystick. By the way you have to make sure the scencor reads the joystick for it to work. anyways I had the battery's go out on me in the middle of a flight. so my tip to you is either have back up key board keys for flying or get a new joystick. Good pc games:halflife C-strike Battle field 1942 (the ultimate war game) You can drive tanks boats, jeeps, motorcycles, planes carriers etc. helocopters too.
Summary: Just as the other Logitech joysticks I've owned, the Freedom 2.4 cordless joystick lost calibration. Maybe not as quickly as the Attack 2 or the Extreme 3D Pro did, but the result is the same. I did get a couple of months out of the Freedom 2.4 before the controller stopped working properly. And I'm not even a serious gamer! Oh, and don't bother trying to contact Logitech about the quality of their products. They won't respond.
Summary: Logitech gets an A for effort and a D for execution for the 2.4 Freedom cordless joystick. I really like the cordless idea and the communications with the PC works well. It is a little overly anxious to shut down to save power, but push any button and it wakes up again. It is the buttons and potentiometers that are the problem.
Summary: I recieved the joystick. It's really amazing....it feels great in my hands. LOOKS AMAZING. Installs very easily....doesn't work. For some reason the joystick did not recognize the reciever. It is currently on its way back to amazon. (great great customer service..
