How do you reset/center the trim for the elevators?

Recommended Posts

I know 'num pad 5' resets the trim for ailerons and rudder, but the elevators have no reset as far as I can tell.Any idea?

which has a null-point (Saitek X52). Even it it hasn't, you can look at the indicator on the VC and align the wheel with the center mark.

I used the word 'resets' but should have used the word 'centers'.Anyway 'num 5' does center the ailersons and rudder, but not the elevators. I think it should!

This is what I use to set the elevator to the optimum position for takeoff:(A:Elevator trim position,part) 1400 (>K:ELEVATOR_TRIM_SET)Make a little button bitmap and stick it somewhere on the instrument panel.You'll need to experiment with the positioning number (the 1400 shown in the click statement) until you find the perfect spot.Hope this helps.
