The odds that you will be replacing it in less than12 months are high.

thx JG52 what a relief...Scorpion what dont you understand??? and JG52 where do you keep your stick or is it always plugged in the computer?

07-06-2007, 08:03 AM
I leave it plugged in all the time under my desk.I use it with an X45 throttle and CH pedals.The logitech has been a better,and more reliable stick than my X45.

The Attack 3 is a pretty good entry level stick. I'm sure you will enjoy the sim much more now. If you stay with IL2 long enough you will want to upgrade to a stick with more buttons/features, and eventually you'll want a full stick/throttle/pedal setup. After that you'll probably realize you can't live without TrackIR http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif Better start saving up your money now http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Good hunting,

I had one of those for about half an hour...then realised its unnatural to fly without rudder control.Id suggest you do same as me ...bring it straight back and upgrade to the Logitech Extreme 3d pro....(dont mind the negative hype-Ive had 2 to 3 yrs heavy use out of my first and bought a spare I love it so much.Tried to like a megabucks Thrustmaster Cougar HOTAS and CH Pedals but came back to my cheap stick quickly!

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/agreepost.gif I put my money on 3 months. For your next stick grab the Saitek EVO if your going to stay in the same price range of 40 dollars or so.

3 months sounds about right if you use it often. Mine quit after about 5-6 months and I don't fly much...

Very nice and accurate first, ffeedback had good feel to it. Sadly only for a while...

Nowadays there are Saiteks connected to my PC's and I'm a happy puppy...

Don't feel bad ASF. Cheap sticks use pots with mechanical wipers. As they wear the stick will start spiking and give phantom readings. A stick with Hall Effect or Optical Sensors will last until the gimbals wear out because there is no contact with these sensors.

I have a Thrustmaster Cougar (Evenstrain mod) and Simped pedals, both with Hall Effect sensors. I wouldn't recommend this for a beginner because it cost as much as a second-hand car. Before this setup I went through a bunch of Logitech and Saitek sticks. When I figured out that I would stay with flight sims I moved to a more expensive stick.

If you were new to skeet shooting you wouldn't buy a $5000 Italian shotgun. You would get a Mossberg or a Remington.
