    Bang for the buck

    This stick is not as full-featured as some of its contemporaries. Let's get trhat out of the way now. To use this stick with an immersive simulator like DCS or even something like Elite: Dangerous or Star Citizen would be pushing it past the limits of its own merit and expecting a pint to hold a quart. That said, for the $30 that this thing can be had for, on sale, it is not possible to find a more comfortable, durable, and featured stick. This stick pairs well with something like a Razer Tartarus to create a low-cost stand-in for a bulky or expensive HOTAS rig. It can also be used in conjunction with WSAD on a traditional gaming or membrane keyboard to give a similar effect, if your muscle memory is especially apt. Touch-typers will find this sufficient, but others may need a more tactile or intuitive control set. Stick is designed as a standalone unit, so the throttle and the six base keys are awkward (read: impossible) to reach while using an offhand control such as a Tartarus, Orbweaver or keyboard. This is partially mitigated by the fact that it dies have a trigger, thumb button, four hat keys and a good, comfortable eight-way hat slider. Perfect for newbies and those advanced builders who forgot to leave room in their build budget for a more advanced control setup. I have extremely large hands which makes the lower keys on the top of the stalk difficult to comfortably reach. Pros: -Super cheap. -Very durable. -Decent generic ergonomics make it usable for most hands. -Lots of buttons and good sensitivity, especially considering the price point. -Very smooth axes with rudder rotation Cons: -ZERO ergonomic adjustability. Very large and very small hands need not apply -Basic design not suitable to advanced or complicated flight sims without extra controls. -No pinkie controls, no DMS-style hat or master-mode style switch.

    Great joystick for the money

    Posted
    Antiace

    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.

    My favorite Joystick

    Simply love this joystick. Great design; fits great in the hand, and has plenty of programmable buttons, plus the nice hat button. The twist feature of the handle is perfect for rudder control without the need for an additional set of buttons (in the past I'd use A and D keys for rudder). It never needs recalibration--plug into the USB port and it is dead centered out of the gate. The base has a solid weight to it, and along with the rubber tabs on the bottom, it almost feels like it is glued to my desktop, which is great considering I tend to overpull the directional axis. In typical joystick play, this joystick has lasted me years; however, since I started playing World of Warplanes for long stretches of game sessions, I've been wearing the joystick out a bit (eventually it will get to the point I have to start calibrating it, and then calibrating it frequently--it seems to occur after about 5,000 matches played thereabout). The joystick is typically around $30 or less though, so feel like I really get my money's worth even if I had to replace it once a year. However, I paid the $7-9 for the Best Buy protection, and when it got to the point I was having to frequently re-calibrate it, I just took it in to Best Buy and they swapped it with a brand new joystick for free. This is my favorite joystick I've used in for the past couple of years, and certainly my favorite at this price point (I've always loved the CH Flightstick Pro, but it is typically 3x more money, so I've stuck with the Extreme 3D Pro and couldn't be happier).

    Great Performance, Excellent Price

    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.

    Still good, but not as good as it was.

    I've owned the predecessor to this product for over 10 years. I finally had some of the buttons go out and it stopped responding to some of my games. It has always been a solid item unlike many other Joysticks which are plastic junk. I'd recommend it's purchase, but only because it's better than what I've come across. I do have some issues with it and the purchase of it: 1. It was really the only joystick available at my local Best Buy; I expected to have a hard time choosing, but there was literally no other Joystick. 2. The new model, is almost exactly the same as the 10-year-old version. Except, it seems to be made more cheaply than the original. Some of the buttons are "sticky", and the secondary trigger, where your thumb sits on the grip, sticks consistently, and I have to coax it to pop back out. 3. The config software that you download from Logitech, has not changed or been improved in 10 years. It visually looks like old thrown-together software, and is by no means intuitive. 4. I'm right-handed, but if you are left handed, you are out of luck with this product, as there is no way to convert it for left-hand use, and there are no left-hand models that I know of. However, for the price (aprox $30), it is a good deal...and if you are a "overly-physical" gammer, like me, it's the most solid joystick, I've found.

    A Classic, Just The Way I Remembered It

    Back in my gaming heyday I wore out several Logitech joysticks from constant playing of the X-Wing and Tie-Fighter games, as well as flight sims from B-17 Flying Fortress to Falcon 4.0. With the reemergence of some new space sims and the rediscovery of the Star Wars games, I'm trying to jump back in the saddle and what better joystick to use than the tried and true 3D Pro. Even back in my prime I preferred the simplicity of these type of joysticks over the complexity of a HOTAS system. I had buddies that had virtual cockpits in their rooms but then, they were training to actually be USAF pilots while my eyes destined me to flying a desk (actually a nuclear missile, but then later a desk). This joystick is just as good as I remembered it and it work great with all the modern games. I will say though that while several on-line forums said that this joystick works with Macs, it does but intermittently and not with anywhere near full functionality. Also, some of the older games such as Tie-Fighter will not map to these buttons. I'm sure that there is some software workaround for that but I'm not too worried. It works great with my laptop and the games I have loaded on it.

    Great Flight Controller

    Posted
    cithatch

    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.

    Awesome joystick

    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.
