I just purchased the extreme 3d pro joystick to use with microsoft flight. I installed the disc for the device and everything but noticed that when under the test tab by going to: control panel/game controlers/my device/properties
There is only two tabs, test and about no calibration tab or button. I noticed in test that when i am not touching the joystick at all, it is set to a little bit down, meaning when im flying and not holding onto the joystick the plan goes up, forcing me to hold the joystick down for the entire flight just to level it off which is a huge pain.
Basically how can I calibrate the joystick so it will work properly, there is no option for me to calibrate in the logitech profiler or anything please help

downloaded lws_clrc.exe as directed (to fix lack of calibration issue) and get following registry errors:
the .exe then says exiting.
2. uninstalling the profiler
3. unplugging the joystick
I still get the error. Please advise. Cant use the joystick because I can't calibrate the z axis

OMG, Logitech - answer the people on this one. I had to dig this up on CNET...
HOW TO CALIBRATE THE LOGITECH EXTREME 3D PRO JOYSTICK
I just figured out how to calibrate this joystick. I am using Windows XP. I assume it will work with all Windows operarting systems though.
Go to Control Panel, click on "Game Controllers", or however you get to your joystick settings. Hold down the "Ctrl" (control key) and the "Shift" key together - at the same time, THEN click your mouse on the "Properties". This should take you to a different calibration screen that you would get to without holding the two keys together. IMPORTANT - Click on the "Test" tab first. If you go to the settings tab first, it likely will not work. Without doing anything else after clicking on the "Test" tab, next click on the "Settings" tab. Then click on the "Calibrate" button below. Click "next". Click the thumb button on the left side of the joystick which should bring you to another screen. Then follow the prompts......
* On the "axis calibration", move your joystick in full circles, making sure the "+" symbol moves around the far margins of the square. After a few complete circles, click the "next" button with your mouse.
* On the next screen, click the left button on the joystick again, which should bring you to the next screen. Move the throttle lever back and forth a few times. Then click "next" again.
* On the "Z rotation screen", move the joystick to the left and right (rotate it) a few times. Then click "next" and then "finish" then "ok". Thats it. It should be calibrated now. Hope this helps everyone with problems.
For Windows 7...
Go to Devices & Printers
Right Click on Extreme 3D Joystick
Click on Game Controller Settings
Ctrl+Shift Click on Properties Here to get to Calibration
If it's not working quite right, plug the joystick into a different USB port and try the directions above again (I had to do this - worked like a charm!!).
