I bought a Force 3D Pro in november 2008. I use it in Flight Simulator X and X-Plane. The joystick moves aircrafts to left without my command. The problem is in the principal axis (left-right/up-down). I have the most new driver (5.04) and I used the clean calibration program. I read bad revisions about this joystick in Internet. I want to know if exist a program to calibrate my joystick. I think this controller is very imprecise and problematic.
Thanks in advance.

I have used the same in FS2004 for 3 yrs.
After a few months of flying it won't turn the aircraft to the right when taxi-ing.
Open up the bottom and spray inside the moving potentiometers with silicon spray or electronic contact cleaner.
Should work again properly.
I have found mine to be precise for flying and it has a solid base and doesn't move around on table.
Just need to service it every few months.
One day the contacts will wear out and I will need a new one.
