OK, This is only semi-il2 related, but it's still an important thing to the game.


I am having problems with my NEW logitech wingman extreme 3d. It's certer 'loose' zone got too big after a week. I'm upset. My old one just broke all togeather, (hence the 'new' one.) I'm liking going to return it, but what should I get? Anyone have anything that centers very tight, and has 'about' the same arrangement? I am not addicted to rudder twist, but I like it alot. Suggestions?

How's it's centering? (return to center) Is there much of a center 'loose space'?

no there isnt loose space at all. plus you can adjust it if you want.

i'd say buy it, try it out, if you dont like it, just take it back.

I hade that Wingman Extremed 3D Digital. So did my brother and they both broke on the rudder after apx. 1 year.
Saw on various forums that this was a known problem.

Currently I use the MS Sidewinder ForceFeedbakc 2 and it's great.
But heard MS discontinued their sticks.

Other than that I suggest the HOTAS like Saitek X45 or if u got the money buy the Cougar.
The Saitek has buttons for rudder. Weird.

I bought a Sidewinder 2 force feedback stick a couple of weeks ago. They are discontinued and I couldn't find any on-line, but there were still quite a few in shops (in the uk), and they were all reduced due to being discontinued.

Its a really good stick, get one while you can!
