Select a button.What revision of the yoke? And what serial number? - its on the bottom.Do you have any random button presses?Can you state your hardware? Motherboard, CPU, GPU...Thx!

Hello Chris,I am assuming your talking about the new Saitek Yoke.If so, the easiest way, to set it up for trim is to assign one of the thumb-rocker switches. You can do so either via the normal fs key mapping or through FSUIPC if you have that.Regards,

Hi Chris,Well there is, Saitek just chose to use a Thumb-rocker design,much like you will find on Boeing Yokes.You wont find a trim wheel, like you had on the older CH-yoke.. not sure why they didn't incorporate that.Regards,

>>You wont find a trim wheel, like you had on the older>CH-yoke.. not sure why they didn't incorporate that.>I may be wrong here but I always thought that wheel on the CH yoke was only a hardware calibration tool - ie to make sure the centre of travel was really in the centre. It's certainly too stiff and inaccurate to be useful as a trim on mine, perhaps that varies with each one - the rocker switch is much better...Geoff
