I have used both the CH Flightstick Pro and the Logitech Wingman 3D joysticks in DF2 and they work great.
#1 Make sure you map the buttons in the option menu.
You can click on the IDENTIFY button to make sure

thing is just "Plug And Play" countless times.
Since you are probably going to ask...yes I still prefer the CH
Products Flightstick Pro. It is a very sturdy piece (compatability
wise) and has provided me with thousands of hours of great
gaming. My son (8yrs old) is very rough on them so when he breaks one, I often get them on the web (used in great shape) for
ten bucks or less..plus freight. I currently use it and the mouse to play JA...left hand stick/keyboard, right hand mouse. As for DF2, right hand stick, left hand keyboard. Button 1 - fire, Button 2 - activate, Button 3 - duck, Button 4 - jump, POV - look up, down,& sidestep.
I hope this helps. Good Luck, Happy Fragging, and May The Force Be With You.
