I've got a Logitech Attack 3. The problem is that if you push the stick forward, it will go to the full measure, but if you pull back, it will only go about a fifth of the way.

Heres what I mean
This is pushing forward:

This is pulling back:

And no jokes about owning a Logitech! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Cheers

No jokes (we've heard them all, **** Logitech), but that sounds like a hardware issue through and through, to me.

Try all the silly things that might work, like unplugging, replugging, or plugging into a different USB port.

Oddly enough, that works with my X52. Sometimes I get stupid problems like the slider I use for prop pitch maxing out at 95%, or the throttle being unable to go lower than 5% - I just unplug/replug, the reset seems to solve the problem. I suspect this is a driver problem with the stick though, I hope they drop and update one of these days.

The logitech sticks, being a lot more simple in construction, are unlikely to have this problem - so it might be time to pull out the ol' warranty card once again.

By an EVO.

Set all to 100.

You'll never see that red box again.

This is no joke, but that's your problem right there. They make good mice, but sodding lousy joysticks.

Friends don't let friends buy Logitech.

I didn't see anyone else mention it but have you tried calibrating it? There may be calibration software included with the drivers. Otherwise check Windows calibration utility. Go to START then SETTINGS then CONTROL PANEL and finally GAME CONTROLLERS.
