New Wingman Joystick
22 January 2009
Summary: I just purchased my new WingMan Extreme Digital 3-D Joystick from Overstock .com. My reason for purchase was to replace my aging, ailing joystick used to log several hours of flying time on my F-22 Raptor game. The software installed quite easily and I was soon off flying missions over deserts and icecaps, blowing up the enemy with two additional buttons not included on my old stick.
Logitech Wingman Extreme Digital 3D: The best Joystick out there
13 October 2009
Summary: I have this joystick for the purposes of flying combat flight sim although I have also used it for racing and driving games. It seems to excel at both. One thing that should probably be noted at this point is that it does not have force feedback. If this is something that you want there is no point considering this product it will never suffice. If you don't want it though, this is one of the best joysticks you can buy.
Pros: Smooth action, positive feeling buttons, very comfy
Excerpt: "...controls to your exact liking. Logitech would do well to look at actual fighter control stick designs to improve the ergonomics of the buttons (would be nice to have a 'pinkie button' for example), but nothing on the market does this less than £60... The two buttons on the base are not that easy to get to, for example. It's all on USB as well, so very easy to install. The twist axis is a bit too easy to employ accidentally when putting in roll inputs, ...
Excerpt: "...However, I don't feel that Logitech were given a very difficult task in writing instructions for this controller - it is very simple to set up and use :) >Installation< ---------------- Installation of the joystick was easy. Simply install the Logitech software from the CD, and connect the controller. Windows will do the detection for you. The joystick has a standard gameport/MIDI connector for plugging into your soundcard etc... but as mentioned ...
Pros: Comfortable to use, sturdy, and offering a good range of controls
Excerpt: "I have had this joystick for ages. i paid £35 for it when it first come out. but from a quick look around it appears it has gone down in price quite alot, it is £29 in comet but you can pick it up cheaper than that from eBay. This joystick has 7 buttons, a 8 way hat switch (pan viewing in flight simulators), a throttle and the control stick twists. A shame it doesn't have a vibration feature though. All the buttons are fully customisable. The ...
Excerpt: "My Logitech Wingman Force 3D arrived at the same time as my first copy of Microsoft's Flight Simulator (2004). At first, I was very happy with the joystick. It seemed very responsive, though perhaps a little too responsive at times. I put that down to my inexperience at using the Flight Simulator. Soon, after I had progressed through a few of the tutorials, I began to hit problems. When taking off from the runway, it is extremely difficult to ...
Pros: Looks good . Plenty of control buttons .
Cons: Not very accurate . Doesn't centre as well as it should .
Summary: I bought one of these babies about 5 years ago. I liked this 7 button baby alot. The joystick itself has 7 buttons, a POV hat, throttle, and by twisting the stick a rudder. The software included was extremely simple to install and use and even allowed specialist controls to be assigned to the stick for specific games. I must mention that I have also got a Microsoft Presision pro that I got as a present 7 years ago now and have used it more then this stick.
Pros: Curves make stick comfortable for long periods, Buttons easily programmed, Twist rudder
Logitech Wingman Extreme Digital: Good pad but motion sensor thingy does not work...
11 April 2001
Summary: A friend gave me this gamepad as a present. As a digital gamepad, it is quite good, better than several others I have used. The pad fits nicely in my hands, though people with tiny hands may find reaching some of the buttons difficult (this is the case for some other gamepads as well). The device comes with software which allows you to configure the buttons and D-pad. The pad is both USB and Gameport compatible.
Summary: Logitech are convinced that force feedback effets are the next step in gaming. I'm afraid I'm a little bit more sceptical.Say the word 'rumble' to me and I think of the deep subsonic emanations you might experience when confronted by an earthquake or a manic thunderstorm. This item would be more accurately called a vibro-pad; but although I'm sure this would have been received with more hilarity, Logitech's marketing people wouldn't have thought so.
Logitech Wingman Extreme Digital: The only way to fly with this is to throw it

Summary: Wingman gamepad extreme its extremely annoying..... what waste of my money it proclaims so much on the pack about the features of this gamepad they forgot to tell you just how much it would cost you to update your computer to the specs required to run all the features. If you have a simple 166 pentium forget it. I had to buy a new sound card that was not enought I then had to buy a new video card still not enought then it was memeory.
