I've got quite some trouble with my joystick. It's a wingman force 3d, but I can't aim accurately with it in IL2:FB. When i zoom on gunsight view, it's nearly impossible to keep the crosshair on the target for some seconds... the steering of the yak-3 and FW's is also way too sensitive.

I tried lowering the first sensetivity numbers of yaw pitch and roll in the input -> hardware setup screen, also tried to increase dead band.. nothing helps.

Could anybody please help me?

Try *raising* the sensitivity. Feels a bit odd and counter intuitive, but I find it works on some sticks. I run my X45 starting at 30-40 in pitch axis and at 15-20 in roll (depending on aircraft).
