Logitech Extreme 3D Pro Joystick — Take Control

When the pressure is on, stick performance is the difference between victory and total oblivion. With advanced controls and a custom twist-handle rudder, this joystick stays stable and precise whether you’re dropping bombs at a distance or firing guns in a dogfight.

Advanced flying comes down to instincts and reaction time. To assist pilots, Logitech lab boys designed a custom twist-handle rudder for natural one-handed control with a smaller device footprint.

Time says:

Razer Loche says:

Can I Macro any button ?

Malte Christrup says:

aaand then i see theres a related video where you talk about dual joystick gaming with this equipment.. totally worth subscribing allready. thx.

Grizzly says:


Crucible King says:

Concerning the throttle, I’d just like to note that I think you happened to be unfortunate with that particular stick. If it’s a concern for anyone considering the product, I have one here & the throttle is smooth with solid resistance. They aren’t all loose like that. Keep up the good work & thanks for the Star Citizen content B.G.

willied88m says:

I have issue I got the stick to work on my Mac but my game Arma 3 will not pick it up, has anybody had this issue

General___W GW says:

does it have force feedback?

Zemtex says:

Ever tried the Thrustmaster T-16000M?

Aleryn says:

Great detail! Thank you.

Michael Wittmann says:

Stick it up ur arse. jk

All Star Citizen says:

Is this still your joystick of choice? I had the dual thrustmaster 16000m’s but felt like I was constantly fighting the tension on it for precision aiming. I tried the mod for to lessen the tension and it worked…but also through the center point off on the stick…and now that I have unmodded it… it is still off center. So I am ready to pony up for a nice one and wanted to make sure I was getting what is considered the best aiming stick for Star Citizen.

steven shifflett says:

Will it work with windows 10 and arma 3?

Trusteft says:

Any idea if this would work with Windows 98se?

cwonin cucumber says:

Does this joystick work with xbox?

Frank Sosa says:

One thing I can’t find out is whether I can just use this as a regular mouse? I have carpal tunnel and think it might work great.

Fred Ottens says:

A little slower please….

Fiasco3 says:

That throttle lever you’ve got is loose, I just tried mine and it doesn’t move anywhere near that fast up and down does it do it on the other stick as well ?

TRENTON Jeu says:

I have this joystick, and I think your throttle is broken because mine is smooth, and slow, and feels great.

wendy rice says:

I use this stick with an x52 throttle and/or Razor keypad-and its works beautifully. Hate the x52 throttle-too loose. Wrapped the handle with some tennis racket grip tape to build up the handle and improve grip. Have tried several other HOTAS and this is still my favorite. Also use ANNA with voice attack, so throttle is optional-but nice in tight fights. Attached them to my custom gaming chair-and I just sit back and enjoy!

jimmy wrangles says:

The rudder will eventually stop working, it’ll become impossible to calibrate eventually.
Every 3d pro I ever bought (3 or 4) failed the same way after 6 months or less.
Logitech are aware of the problem and have chosen to do nothing so I assume they’re designed to fail.

Slamdoxicalz says:

I bought this one for 30 euros about 10 years ago 😀

The Technoclast says:

My Mad Catz / Cyborg FLY 5 broke after 2 hours of play. Jesus, I hope I can exchange it for this and some extra games or something.

Zak Stewart says:

Does this work on Xbox one

Spoder Games says:

I tried this throttle good quality throttle good resistance great for Kerbal space program

Maiden Voyage says:

Is it possible to re-program the joystick for other games?

JoeyDee says:

I want to love this joystick, but not zero’ing at rest is really a big deal…

Precison007 says:

hey bored can u plz make a set up config vid for these joy sticks in Star citizen! im arunning a duel stick and let to see how u fly with you and what button u have set and where. and btw GARLIC

Scharfe says:

seems the dial is hit or miss mine came fine a friends was wobbly

WFarmer22 says:

Should I get this joystick for war thunder?

Malte Christrup says:

Orhh man! 😀 I love your reviews! haha, bashing all the buttons with such vigor! xD this is the first one im watching – but you covered every answer i needed covered – im sure a double up on this will work great for farming simulator 15 and 17 (; haha. at least i hope the game will destinquish between the two controllers..

PinkasBrown44 says:

This joystick or the thrustmaster flight stick X ?
(the only 2 available for good prices in my local online shop…the thrustmaster being 20 USD cheaper)

Vander Salad says:

Did you ever find a good way to give the throttle paddle more resistance?

CJ Rosengarten says:

Will it work for xbox

Dara Bradley says:

Could you set it up as a gear stick for farming simulator 2017 gearbox mod?

Hearsay says:

Video too complicated, got joystick stuck up my rectum.

Bumble Brah says:

I have one, it’s my first been using it about 6 months. I mostly play rise of flight and il2 bos it works well is easy to keybind but I’m finding myself wanting Moar buttons as I don’t want to use the keyboard for anything. it also has twist for rudders which I find can accidently torque you the wrong way depending on how heavy handed you are. however mine was only like 50 dollars and it does serve it’s purpose and makes the games I’m playing a lot of fun.

Airborne Gully says:

I use 2 of these, I took them apart and spread the stick from base in order to make the buttons and “throttle” available with out moving hands. Next step is to update the POTs to Magneto restant sensors. If you want Ill DM you some pics @bored

Oni Akuma says:

joysticks, particularly this one, is meant to me used in combination with the keyboard or a left thruster. not meant to be used centered where if u rest your hand, it will slant to the right.

Jeremy Walker says:

It leans toward you because you are too low. If you were too high you’d push it.

George Adams says:

Would I be able to use this as a combination with a mouse for FPS like Fallout 4? Like I want this for my left hand for movement in the game and then the mouse in my right hand for aiming?

ParAdoX__ Memecostore says:

can you use this for racing games?

Dave L says:

Good video but whilst you can grab the stick with your left hand, it isn’t ambidextrous, this stick is a right handed stick.

Fiasco3 says:

I actually went back to a Logitech 3D Pro after buying the more expensive Thrustmaster T16000 which despite peoples claims of superior build quality broke pretty easily in a dogfight. I miss the extra buttons on the right side of the 16000 and it did tune up well for accuracy but I prefer the thumb throttle and top trigger buttons on the 3D Pro.
I’ve had the 3D Pro for awhile and it’s been a solid performer.

Ali Baba says:

Bored gamer I have urgent question, my joystick is a bit loose at the centre….. is it normal

Eric Parsley says:

Do you think this would work fine with Windows 10?

jjasspper says:

I like how this man is raping the stick.

Cachorro de Óculos says:

I wish this was cheaper in Brazil…
