PostSubject: A Good Joystick 2 Have?   Tue Oct 16, 2012 9:12 am

I just want a basic joystick to purchase today. I don't want one that is too complicated to use, as this will be my first one. Meaning, I don't like the ones with 10 buttons on them. I just want a simple, good joystick to use.

I am lQQKing into the Logitech Attack 3 USB Joystick


Any ideas?

Hey, THANKS, Doug!

I bought the Logitech Attack 3 yesterday, but ... no twist! That sucks. Now I'm trying to sell it on ebay lol!


I DID however turn around this AM and purchased through Logitech's website the Logitech EVO 3D Pro Rated #1 ... $29.99


So soon I'll be a Tech flyer!!! haha

The thing for me with this joystick is where its easiest for me to access flares and afterburner. I keep switchng it up. It's going to take some getting used too, lol. Great joystick though. Thanks, Doug!

Great call Blanco! What about the Missles? And I only use the joystick for jet. I fly much better with mouse while in chopper.

I'm going to practice offline when I get home for 30 minutes and see if I can get this down b4 making myself look bad on the server lol. When flying, I have to get used to the different views with camera. I mostly am a combat ground-n-pound type of person. I liek to supply, revive and move in groups.

Dont install the software included with the joystick.
I use one of the buttons on top of flares or drop bombs for missiles.

Well hell, I already installed the game software CD that came with it. Also, I read somewhere to go to logitech's website and download the gaming software for the thing to work right in bf2. I'll uninstall everything when I get home in an hour and so you're saying don't install anything? Just plug it up and set controls?

The Logitech Extreme 3D Pro is what I have. It's smooth and easy but it's taking me some getting used to. I do good until another jet gets behind me What a Face

$29.99 www.logitech.com
