old two buttons Logitech Wigman that I use to fly Janes F15, ( yes, I know that I should use something better).F15 is totally imposible to land due to a over response of the joystick, my plane start moving like a yo-yo with just a little push up or down. I calibrate everytime I start a game and the problem is less notorious, but after 15 or 20 minutes flying the problem begin. Is the f15 supposed to be so delicate or I really should change my ancient joystick. Any suggestions??

I had the same problems you had with the "Yo Yo" effect. After many, many crash landings I finally figured out it was not my Joystick. Here's what I found out. When landing, do not or at least try not to move the stick at all. Use the throttle to move the plane verticle and the rudders to use slight horizontal movement. Also, the most important thing to know is your aircraft's weight. Look in the ENG MPD and you'll see the weight displayed. Then look it up on the chart to see the proper verticle speed rate.

If your coming in at 50.000 llbs. gross, then your VSI should read 700 FPM or so. It takes alot of practice, took me quite some time. I'd recommend landing with a half full fuel tank and no ordanance. It tends to be easier this way. Hope this helps.
