I have a Microsoft Sidewinder (yes, its old and pretty crappy but it gets me through) and whenever i use the hat switch and then ajust the aircraft's pitch or yaw, the screen will stop scrolling which is really frustrating during a dogfight, because multi-tasking hand eye co-ordination is essential.
Also get that Z axes working because its out of the way to press z and x, and you cant get a precise ammount of rudder.

Now I have two questions left:
1. Is there away to ajust scroll/ speed?

2. Any reccomendations of good joysticks I should look into?
