After the successful launch of our original trim wheel last year, we've listened to your feedback and are proud to announce the Flight Velocity Trim Wheel Pro.
Pilot-adjustable sensitivity control on the unit - adjust the sensitivity of the wheel as you fly, no need for plugins or other workarounds!
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.
The Flight Velocity Trim Wheel Pro is fully compatible with Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020, X-Plane,Prepar3D, FSX, and the Redbird Jay! It has the exact form factor as the Logitech/Saitek throttle quadrant so it fits right into your existing setup. In fact, it has the same mounting holes as these units which means that it's compatible with all of our panels as well as the Logitech/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
