I'm using the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro joystick.
My problem is either the stick itself or (more likely) me, the pilot, having a touch like a baby elephant.
At the moment, foot pedals are not an option so I'm using the twist function on the stick to control the rudder but I'm finding that from the zero or "hands off" position, any input to a single axis is giving an unwanted input to another, no matter how gentle I try to be with the stick.
This is making flying very twitchy and uncomfortable but taking off is a lottery........ I can accept that as a "Noob" my inputs are not as smooth or natural as they'll become with practice but I'm certainly not swinging on the thing like a pole dancer either!
I've been into the joystick control settings and I know there are posts explaining the pros and cons of altering things too much. I don't want to make things unrealistic but my thoughts are for adding a dead zone to lessen the risk of unwanted input.
Am I right or wrong in my thinking or is there a better way.. And if I'm right, do I need a dead zone on every axis?.....Mapping the function buttons to suit my preferences, I'll sort out later but for now I just want to get some control of the control surfaces.
All thoughts, help, advice welcome, folks.... Even if it's.... "The noob's being a Muppet again".......You're probably right!
