I have had MSFS installed for over 20 years beginning with an Atari 800 and I have never had a problem with input until now.  I am hoping someone can provide guidance.

In the very old days I used the keyboard, but not a mouse.  Now I have a Saitek Aviator 01 and a Logitech extreme 3D Pro joystick.  The Saitek is recognized but not configured and the Logitech is fully supported.  I used the Logitech after installation and everything worked fine except the throttle.  Sometimes idled at 50% power setting, reverse axis did nothing, never knew what to expect of basic Cessna 152.  Ditto with Saitek.  Removed throttle from joystick configuration and used the keyboard (F1-F4) with sluggish and unpredictable results..  went back to straight defaults and the Logitech worked for about 30 minutes and then ALL joystick input vanished.

Are other people having problem with their controllers?  Do you have Dead Zone and sensitivity settings that work?

incidentally, I seem to need rudder trim in straight and level flight or I drift left.  I never noticed that before.  Is it normal for single prop airplanes outside of takeoff?

Love the scenery, but......

All advice is appreciated

I am used to the yaw left on takeoff for which right rudder can compensate.  Left yaw is flight is new.  I think that I need to configure joystick buttons for rudder trim.  Maybe it should have always been this way even in FSX.
