Question about Logitech Attack 3 Joystick
THE CROSSHAIRS MOVE RIGHT ALONG THE X AXIS AFTER CALIBRATION CAUSING A PLANE IN FLIGHT SIMULATOR X TO BANK UNCONTROLLABLY TO THE RIGHT. tHE CROSSHAIRS ALSO MOVE IRRATICALLY WHEN THE STICK IS MOVED HORIZONTALLY. THIS APPEARS TO BE A COMMON PROBLEM BASED ON WHAT OTHER USERS HAVE SAID.
It is unfixable and it boils down to bad desighn and cheap parts

The Problem with the Logitech Attack 3 Joystick is Unfix-able I Have even gone as far to take it apart and I Noticed a serious design flaw. The cable that runs from the main board of the joystick to the top of the stick that works the four buttons and trigger enters At the right side of the plastic motion boarders at the X-Axis side then the cable enters the shaft right through the upper side of the plastic motion boarder ware the X-Axis motion sensor is located so the wire blocks the full motion of the Attack 3 joystick on the right side.
I have moved the cable so it enters the center shaft of the stick above the pivoting motion boarder through a small hole that I cut out that's above the X & Y Axis motion Boarder.
the stick somewhat works better I get full motion to the right but it still moves erratically and it only moves erratically when moved to the right but like I said at least I get full motion on the right and I didn’t before I modified it.
the only thing I can say about this piece of **** is that Logitech made Two Major Design Flaws one is the construction of the Attack 3 and the other is the parts they chose to use in the attack 3 The parts are Just Cheap and there Build Team Needs to Stop Taking Short Cuts in Development and start to thoroughly test there Product before marketing. Just think how many millions they made from this one model and Logitech loves every sale.
Wish I had Pictures to show

See the links above, and you can find countless postings across the Net from users who are all experiencing exactly the same problems.
I am a keen player of Fighter Ace. I wanted a reasonably priced reliable stick, so I went for a manufacturer I knew well and considered I could be confident with .....
How wrong could I be? It basically doesn't work. I'm 25 years in IT and I've tried everything. I'm sticking it in the bin before I waste anymore time with it.
I'm just hoping the Saitek I have ordered will be a lot lot better!
My advice, bin it and never trust Logitech again.
