    Logitech Extreme 3D Pro frequently fails to calibrate in the X axis. Removed Logitech drivers and joystick functioned for about a week using Windows drivers. Joystick often fails to caibrate on any PC. 'Calibrated' position in the X axis is random. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling Logitech drivers and also ran the calibration clearing utility from Logitech. No effect on the X Axis stabilt seen. On stripping the joystick, no loose wires or obvious defects seen

    We have the EXACT same problem. I've had this Attack 2 for some years. I soon stopped using it because it was so erratic, and blamed Windows. Now I find on 2 Macs plus a new PC that the joystick starts out full-range, then mysteriously the right excursion (digital code) decreases to almost nothing. e.g., 164 instead of 255. Sometimes erratic spikes to full-right are seen.
    I can't find a data sheet on the CP5766AM to try to understand the problem. I am an engineer but can't work without data. Is there a fix? Can anyone send me a datasheet? Thank you.

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.

I would first of recommend doing a calibration of your joystick. To do that, make sure your joystick is connected to your computer and go to your start menu>>devices and printers. Once your window pops up, find your joystick and right click on the icon, and go to settings. You can find the calibration wizard there. Once that is done, open up your Flight Simulator X, and go to the settings tab. Along the right hand side, click on controls. From there you can configure your joystick buttons to whichever action you like. Please keep in mind as well when your are adjusting the elevator trim, rudder trim, that the adjustments made from one keystroke, or button push, are very very small adjustments. You can change that by moving the slider on the Repeat column, thereby making one keystroke or button push equal to multiple taps!

Just purchased saitek yolk with throtle but its not working ,.tried calibration still does not work


I had a friend with exactly same issues, only he used a CH Flight Yoke system.

Calibration can be very tricky sometimes, and it has very often to do with how the configuration file has been set up.

You might have to rebuild your configuration file for your Flight Simulator before it will work properly.

However here is some hints for calibration fix from Saiteks UK support.

Maybe this can solve your problem, understanding how to make a valid configuration file for Flight Simulator.

Speed doesn't work


no the buttons does not have anything to do with this, first you need to recailibrate the flight yoke. then go back into flight simulator and check the senitivity levels move them all the way to the right the null needs to be to the left let me know if this takes care the problem if not we can do some more testing.

Speed doesn't work


The markings on the TQ are not to be used literally. I suggest you use it to get the speed you want on your gauge and ignore markings on the TQ iteslf. Try re-calibrating in your sim program so it knows what the full range of the throttle is.

although this did not solve my problem, it is worth a try to reset the calibration settings stored in the windows registry.

These are the steps for it:

To recalibrate, first unplug the controller.

Go to start/run and type 'regedit'

The registry editor will have a list of folders on the left hand side. Go
down into the following folders in order.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (HKEY_CURRENT_USER if on VISTA)
System
CurrentControlSet
Control
Media Properties
Private Properties
Direct Input

Inside the Direct Input folder, delete any folder that begins VID_06A3.

Once done, close the editor.

Plug the controller back in and move all the
axes (including throttle) through their full range of movement 4 times.

Now go to control panel/game controllers/properties to see if there are any changes to the test screen?

If it helps you, it didn't do it for me ;) but I reckon it's worth a try

When I bank right or left with joystick the screen Freezes


To check the joystick isn't the problem, go into control panel game controls, then check that the joystick appears and you can move the cross-hair around on screen, most modern joysticks are
auto-calibrating, but you could try running the calibration.

To check the game isn't a problem, unplug the joystick, then use the arrow keys to fly the plane, if it doesn't crash when you bank then it isn't the game.

I assume the game is Combat Flight Simulator 3, as very old games that were written for Windows 95,98,ME series often won't run on Windows NT,2000,XP,Vista as they are completely different versions of Windows. If this is actually Flight Simulator 3, you may need to consider buying a later version of Flight Simulator (FSX is the latest version, but may not run on your laptop).

Other things to try are updating the graphics card driver.

Norton shouldn't need deactivating, although it could cause problems if you're playing online.

Also remember that laptop graphics cards are never as powerful as desktop graphics, and games very rarely specifically support laptop graphics.

Hope this helps.
