No trim wheel in the Mooney?

Recommended Posts

Is there no visible trim wheel in the Mooney? I can see the indicator on the instrument panel, but no physical wheel in the virtual cockpit.I'm guessing that it must be electric trim worked from the switches on the yoke - but why no wheel? Even Airbuses and Boeings seem to have them.--Bryn

In addition to the trim indicator, there is a "Push ON Elev Trim" switch- bottom centre of the main panel. Use mouse top+, bottom- clicks or mouse wheel to set trim. Why? Guess Mr Mooney preferred switches and elec trim over wheel and cable.Alex Reid

Thanks Alex, missed that one right under my nose in the 2D cockpit (but obscured by the yoke arm in the 3D cockpit if in level flight).--Bryn
