Trim Wheel Pro Setup Instructions

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.
