Great Flight Controller
Posted by: cithatch from: pemberton, nj on
being wary of the realization thats it's a flight stick with "weak points" . I bought this for my 11 year old, explained the importance of treating it gently right away because of the possible weak points (He's an obedient kid like that), and he's been using it for about 3 weeks now for Flight Sim X and Aces High, absolutely no durability issues.
Installation, I have Windows XP Home, and I installed the software first, and "waited" for the software to instruct me when to plug in the controller (some of my other external equipment wouldnt install without waiting for the software, so i assumed the same with this). No trouble at all, worked easily first try.
Nice throttle control built into the front, the controller also has a "twist" control which i though was cool, kind of like a "motorcycle grip", anyways, our games responded well to the full range of motion, all the buttons worked, etc. I reccomend.

You know, I see so many products with reviews stating a product not working right out of the box, or breaking after a short time. I tend to ignore these and concentrate on the reviews that appear to have been written by someone with an IQ over 50.
I have owned my Extreme 3D PRO for over 5 years now with no troubles. Only now am I having some minor issues with it, and tell you what...I will buy this one again.

Great joystick for the money
Posted by: Antiace from: Lake oswego, Oregon on
This is a very good product for the money, it would be a great joystick for the beginner just getting into flying simulations or even an expert simulations pilot just looking for a good joystick for the money. Some of the things I like about the joystick is it seems to be well built and it has 12 programmable buttons plus a throttle, and a hat switch witch is good for looking around your plane the only thing I don't like is that the hat switch is not clickable and it's kinda hard to use accurately to look at an angle but it is pretty easy to look forwards backwards and left or right, and the joystick also has a rest for your hand to rest on, witch I use a lot on long flights. Some things I don't like is the seem that runs down the center of the stick that has some ruff spots, and another problem I have is the trigger. The problem I have with the trigger is that it will shoot if you push up on it from underneath witch can cause you to accidentally shoot off a couple bursts every once in a while with your middle finger while pulling back on the stick or just angling your hand, but you get use to it . But over all I think this is a good joystick for the price and is well worth taking a look at for a first joystick or an expert wanting a good stick for the money.i hope this review will help whoever reads it.

Great Performance, Excellent Price
Posted by: CJohnson from: Bakersfield, CA on
I always research my products that I purchase. This was one of the best joysticks I've ever used. Not only because of the amazing quality for the price, but because it can be very difficult to find a joystick with just the right tension. Many allow even the lightest of touch to move which makes it very difficult for smooth accurate flying. Tension makes the stick feel more realistic as well as easy to use especially for flight sims. Works for Windows 7 (may need to download updated drivers from website) and software allows for fully programmable buttons and axis'. I use mine on WIndows 7 for Battlefiled 2 and I prefer it over my friends Saitek X52 Joystick.
Con- Although you won't find a better joystick for the money and even verses some more expensive models, the other reviews are totally correct when it comes to the Handle Twist function (used for tail rudder) becoming off center. Mine seems to favor the left just slightly. Unplugging and plugging back into the PC helps center again but not always. Calibrating won't help. Might just be a side effect of having a twist handle joystick. This is the only reason I don't give it a perfect 5.0 rating.

I got this joystick years ago and it still works great. I bought HAWX a few months ago and have been loving the joystick since it's fully compatible with the game. I had to change around a few buttons to get it to work to my liking, but overall I'm completely satisfied. I'm confused with the PS2's USB capability, but I'm sure that if I did it right I could set it up to play Ace Combat 0 on the PS2, which would OWN.
Of course, it has some downsides. While it's widely compatible, it's a tad difficult to control and takes a while to get used to. I notice that it shifts around slightly when I'm forced to suddenly change direction, which throws me off a lot. If it were a bit heavier, it probably wouldn't shift as much, and the joystick would be easier to control. It's also a bit stubborn depending on the platform that it's on.
Overall it's a great product for its price, and while I'm considering getting a more realistic joystick for Christmas, I'll still love this if I don't get one.

I used for my Flight simulator, I can setup all the buttons so my experience can be more realistic in the game. Excellent choice and excellent price.

Very good value for the price. Simple to use and effective. Easy to set up. Easy to use. Fits my hand very well. I use it for Microsoft Flight Simulator and enjoy the product combo.

The "Wow" is now
Posted by: Willie498 from: Los Angeles,California on
I walked into bestbuy some time ago, and me having a bit of money, Was looking around. They had one of those store setups of the flight simulator and this joystick, and I was amazed how well it worked! It was like a dream, So for only $29 i picked one up and took it home. Less than 5 minutes later, I was already flying in the air on FSX Deluxe. I've tried on XP,Vista,Win7 and they've all worked. Great joystick, go out and get one.

Works with X Plane 9 on Win 7
Posted by: ttkk1 from: Charleston, SC on
purchased for xplane 9 running on win7 pc. the best buy sales associate told me to download the drivers directly from logitech and ignore cd drivers in the box. took all of 5 minutes and my joystick was installed and running. read other reviews and was cautious but have played with it for a couple of hours and really like it have not seen any problems works great.
