X-Plane 11.26r2, Arch Linux, Clean installation via Steam

Just bought a Logitech Extreme 3D Pro but unfortunately it does not calibrate in the settings menu whatsoever. It does get detected correctly, but no matter how hard I move it, the indicators stay in the red position. The joystick itself is working well and I can confirm that by checking the output:

$evdev-joystick -s /dev/input/event8

Supported Absolute axes:

  Absolute axis 0x00 (0) (X Axis) (value: 508, min: 0, max: 1023, flatness: 63 (=6.16%), fuzz: 0)

  Absolute axis 0x01 (1) (Y Axis) (value: 512, min: 0, max: 1023, flatness: 63 (=6.16%), fuzz: 0)

  Absolute axis 0x05 (5) (Z Rate Axis) (value: 128, min: 0, max: 255, flatness: 15 (=5.88%), fuzz: 0)

  Absolute axis 0x06 (6) (Throttle) (value: 255, min: 0, max: 255, flatness: 15 (=5.88%), fuzz: 0)

  Absolute axis 0x10 (16) (Hat zero, x axis) (value: 0, min: -1, max: 1, flatness: 0 (=0.00%), fuzz: 0)

  Absolute axis 0x11 (17) (Hat zero, y axis) (value: 0, min: -1, max: 1, flatness: 0 (=0.00%), fuzz: 0)

The values change when I move the stick around. But the moment I open X-Plane, they freeze and when I quit, they become alive again. I tried jstest and sdl2-jstest and both work fine, even when having multiple instances running at the same time.

I could not find the insert file button, so here goes a Dropbox link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/z7bvhk6hh6v20n2/Log.txt?dl=0

Any hints appreciated :)

Fixed it: If you have different USB ports, try them out. For whatever reason the port I sticked it into did not make it work in X-Plane.
