    Before I used these settings the joystick was very unresponsive (set to pitch up and down), but now I've changed that with the binding settings all sorts of joy and happiness are coming my way, and I'm even starting to hit things
    Cool!

    I'm looking for a joystick, I'm between this Logitech and the T-flight Stick X.
    Which is the best?

    Actually Thrustmaster T.16000M is better as it has hall-effect sensors, which means it is really precise.

    I wouldnt worry, i have a logitech 3d extreme from the stone age (10 years+) re calibrated and it works perfectly. a new one should be fine

    basicly i use the fire buttons and the nub on top for thrust L R U D

    most everything else is on voice attack

    With the update, you have to copy the custom bindings to *your E: D install dir*\Products\FORC-FDEV-D-1002\ControlSchemes)

    Just an FYI

    Just got a Extreme pro 3d since you guy are working hard on a profile =)

    I cant get the throttle to work though. And if I set it myself it does add throttle but does not feel "analog" so to speak.

    I prefer the W & S keys for the throttle. One hand on KB and one on joystick.
    I use Zieman's file and it works great. Many thanks for that to Zieman!

    improved logitech 3d binding and diagram

    Hi guys,

    I took the liberty of improving the original binding file posted above..
    I added hyperspace, weapons retract, and I also made the hat switch able to control the menus..

    You can get the binding file here..

    And I made a diagram for it as well..

    Looking to buy this today.

    Is there a difference between the model numbers 942-000001 and 942-000005 ?

    They both are described as Logitech extreme 3d pro but one says 3d pro precision. Thx.

    So it's arrived and I'm even worse with this than I am with the keyboard and mouse. I've spent a few hours setting everything up and I'm comfortable and know where each of the buttons are.

    The problem is still the same. I find it incredibly difficult to keep a moving target in my sights.

    The slightest movement of the joystick seems to move my targets way too far.

    It's obviously something I'm doing wrong, or it's something wrong with my setup, but to be quite honest atm I'm ready just to give up in utter frustration.

    I've probably spent well over 100 hrs fiddling around and watching videos on you tube and I still feel I'm a country mile away from being able to fight.

    I can dock and trade etc, but have only won combat scenario 3 once in probably 200+ attempts.

    What I need is for the movement to be very slow initially and then speed up. I really am at a complete loss now. Buying the stick was my last throw of the dice. I've read so many threads when the game "just clicked", once they got a joystick. Not for me. And I'm bored of flying around just trading. I've got well over 3 million and I want to get geared up for a fight, but atm that is clearly pointless.

    Even combat scenario 2 is difficult with the joystick.

    Help me, Somebody please help me.

    Having had my Extreme 3D Pro for about 8 years and using it last for Battlefield 2 on the PC it's been sitting there since gathering dust unused after moving over to Xbox 360 gaming.

    I've been setting it up for use with Elite : Dangerous and, at first, movement wasn't smooth until, thanks to Mysturji's suggestion earlier in the thread, using Axis when setting up movement instead of the standard up/down/left/right.

    Now the joystick feels a lot more smoother when maneuvering.

    How much time have you spent with the joystick? It takes time to build up muscle memory.. don't give up..

    Believe it or not the solution was just a simple change of height that my chair was at.

    I increased the height and I'm now able to move the joystick in smaller increments. I absolutely love YAWing during a fight.

    Whilst I'm managing to win combat scenario 3 probably 80-90% of the time, I still wouldn't feel comfortable in regular play. I guess I'll just have to practice and practice.
