  • A brand new, more refined digital encoder at the heart of the wheel. This yields an improved tactile feel and finer control.
  • Totally re-written software that allows the wheel to be seen by the simulator as an axis control providing an even higher level of control than the original.

After years of asking, "why doesn't someone make a trim wheel?", we decided we would! Introducing the first-ever, Flight Velocity Trim Wheel.

Our elevator trim wheel is fully compatible with Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020, X-Plane, Prepar3D, and FSX and has the exact form factor of the original to which it pays homage. In fact, it has the same mounting holes as the original which means it's compatible with all of our panels as well as older Saitek mounting brackets.  

Take your flight sim to the next level with this simple, yet integral part of the flight sim experience. 

Dimensions: 3.5" wide, 4.3" tall, 4.3" deep
