I have a Logitech Wingman Attack 2. When i let go of the stick whislt flying there is a right roll, and also after flying for about ten minutes my right roll drops. When i put the stick fully to the right the plane only rolls a little bit, it is the same with the ptich.

It's a Logitech, they are all garbage quality from my experience and others. If it's new try to give it back and get a Saitek Evo or whatever. Reset the joystick in the xp control panel and recalibrate it. If it still is off give it back.

p.s This should go in technical help forum. Ude get more replies there too.

That's normal for this generation of Logitech sticks. Total porkage. Suggest you take it back like the other guy sais and buy something else.

Its a firmware problem so Logitech can't fix it without a recall. I think that's why they've got their fingers in their ears pretending its all cool.

Yup, it's a hardware problem.
Logitech used potentiometers (same thing as
volume controls in a radio or CD player) to
convert the motion of the stick to signal
to your computer.
They wear out quickly and are sensative to humidity.
Ever heard a scratchy volume control? Same thing.
It drives your computer nuts.

Logitech has a major nightmare on their hands.
If you have a Logitech stick that works good
it will eventually fail.
I recomend against buying one.

Seems almost to be a standard problem for logitech nowadays.
Olli72's stick (Logitech freedom2.4 ) got own life in similar way, but he got full rudder input to one side when using elevator, or just full rudderinput when normal = Impossible to fly.

I have the same stick and Im just wating for it to act up. Its has already a indications of pork, and rudder pulls hard left without input on some flights... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

Maiornikov, I don't touch the hardware input so i guess its default.
