So i decided to reinstall X-Plane 10 last night as i bought a new Joystick/Flight Stick and though i'd see if the game had any decent improvements nope none in fact the calibration for joystick is horrible not to mention they inverted the pitch so i had to press the joystick downward in order to take off and if i wanted to go left i had to merge right and vise versa for pitching downward and going left.
I even tried to fix the controls and it still messed up.
This is how bad it was
Try calibrating with the windows calibration tool, If I recall, do a cortana search for USB Game Controller, there should be somewhere in there to calibrate it since you have a basic Logitech stick. Try installing proper drivers from the logitech website, If you havent done so, then Windows installed a generic driver.
Find a way to reset your controls in X-Plane, as for pushing forward to go up, see if you can invert the axis.
Try the X-Plane 11 demo, the controller setup is way easier(at least for me it is) Be warned, the demo has a 30 minute time limit but you can play as many times as you want, so factor that into your controller/graphics setup times before trying a flight.
