Step up your Flight Sim game  with our new Version 4 desk-mounted trim wheel assembly!
Designed to give the look and feel of a small aircraft trim wheel, our control is made of rugged 3-D printed PLA or PETG plastic, and includes a long-life potentiometer, rated at 100,000 cycles. The assembly is geared to provide almost 3 full turns of the trim wheel, using the entire usable range of the potentiometers rotation, adding precision and realism. Our new curved indicator lets you know how far you are from the neutral position, and makes it easy to center the trim, with tick marks every 40 degrees, and a larger tick mark for center. Greatly increases immersion in your sim, as instead of clicking away on unrealistic keyboard keys, or using your mouse to adjust trim, you can use a control that mimics the real thing.

Comes with a mount that attaches to the top or bottom of your desk with 3 screws. The trim unit itself easily slides out of the mount for easy stowage when not in use. Unit is reversible for right or left handed use.

This new 2nd generation version trim wheel includes our new Trim-Lock, a unique end stop mechanism that will prevent you from over-turning the wheel and damaging the gears and potentiometer!


USB Control board will appear as a standard HID Joystick controller, identified as a "Gear-Falcon Elevator Trim" in your system devices, and has breakout pins for 8 digital inputs - you can upgrade it by connecting buttons, switches, encoders, etc.

Now comes with a 10 foot USB Mini-B cable.

Fully compatible on PC or MAC with any flight sim that allows you to map an analog axis to the elevator trim...MSFS2020, IL-2 Cliffs of Dover, IL2-BoX, XPlane, etc.

Attention MSFS 2020 users: Please remember to turn off "AI Auto Trim" in the Assistance menu or the AI will not let you trim the aircraft yourself.
If you have problems getting it to work in MSFS 2020 take a look at this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXejtzR1GUI

Made of 3-D printed black PLA plastic.

If you don't want to attach the mount permanently to your desk, you can purchase the optional low-profile desk-mount clamp, that can be easily removed to be put away when not in use.
