-Calibrate joystick right after you started up the game.
-Make the death zone small enough (setup in MSFS game submenu sensitivities).
-If you have a Logitech stick, get rid of it and buy another brand.>they suck
-buy a saitek,sidewinder or even better thrustmaster top gun fox 2 pro.

STARalliance24 ,

Check in your FS2004 assignments that your ailerons/elevator joystick axis isn't controlling the rudder axis as well. I've had problems where I've had the rudder assigned on 2 different controllers, with similar results to those you have described...

Hope this helps,

Cheers,
Ian.

I got a Logitech and the same problem. I think I got a Wingman Force Feedback Pro or something like that.

If you read the numerous threads about force feedback sticks in many of the sim forums (simviation,flightsim,avsim) it all comes down to one thing, except for 1 very expensive system (thrustmasters HOTAS) there really is no such thing as a good ,realistic force Feedback stick.

Besides, as I have stated a couple of times before in other threads, the Logitech joysticks are among the worst performers looking at sensitivity, calibration and certainly reliability.

I use the thrustmaster TopGun Fox 2 Pro (USB) now and it performs excellent ,is reasonably cheap and much sturdier, I also heard some good things about the Saitek's.

I used the Saitek Cyborg Evo - it's pretty big, but it's nice. Need to calibrate the axes a bit often, but my work around is just to check that all the control surfaces work before flying, and that calibrates it. I've had it for over a year and no problems ... despite the fact that it's travelled with me often even on business.

I've got that controller and its great, one thing i have noticed about Flight simulator is that for every flight you do always calibrate the joystick! otherwise the rudder more often than not starts to yaw mainly to the right.

I have a Logitech 2.4Ghz Wireless joystick and yes it is fu*cking sensible sometimes, but the way i fix this issue it that i deac. and then reac. it. Then it works fine for the rest of the time.

Anyways im getting my new CH Joke, 4-engine thrust levers and Pedals, in 2 days!

I just cant wait Big grin
