Review will be delayed a bit.  I uncovered a bug in the current drivers.  They are shipping me a disk with some updated software.  Further testing will wait for the disk to show up.

I can tell you right now that I really like this setup.  I wont go into detail here, but so far I am very impressed.  :)

You should let them know that they can also transfer this kind of stuff via the internets :)

 Glad to see you have something to take your mind off things. I know it don't cure the problems but nice shiny objects DO make one feel good for a bit. Go do just that. go fly the skys Marcus, be a pilt who's only worry is not to get shot down.

Go now, go forth and fly!!

lol  Yes Pete, you are right.  The gentleman in the initial video announcement has contacted me tonight.  I have been Emailed new drivers, and firmware. He is working with me to resolve the issue at hand.  

Wish me luck!

Wahoo!  Let the flying begin!

Turns out the problem was with Vista.  Big surprise right?  lol

What happened was that while installing the Logitech Software... at the point where it tells you to plug in your controller, Windows decided to install it's own drivers despite me installing the Logitech software. 

Just deleted a couple registry keys inserted by Windows Vista, and poof!  The stick works perfectly.

Off I go!

I am ready to review this bugger now.  I have spent a large number of hours with a stick in my hand.  I really want to do this as a video review, but I don't have access to a good camera.  So I've put the message out on my facebook account.  Maybe I'll get lucky.

If I can't turn up a camera by Saturday night, I will simply publish the written review on Sunday.

I love this product.  I hope that my giddiness for it's awesomeness doesn't make me come off as biased.

Did you really think by jumbling more words around it, you could get away with that?
