Aileron Trim Offsets. (For slower smoother trim)

Recommended Posts

Hi Pete or anyone who might help.

I just used the example given in the main user guide for my registered copy of FSUIPC for the off set elevator trim. With further reading I see I needed the FSUIPC for programers to get the offset for aileron trim. I would like to use the same procedure for my aileron trim.

I seached the FSUIPC for programmers and only found the offset for HELO trim. IE



Helo bank (aileron) trim control: ・16383 to +16383, but only when ―ApplyHeloTrim‖set to ‗oth・.

Is this the offset for aileron trim as well?



Aileron trim deflection, in radians, as a double (FLOAT64). Right turn positive, left turn negative.

I am new to the offset procedure and would appreciate guidance. THANKS SO MUCH!

This works wonderful as I have my X52 set up so I have an AXIS for trim, then another button style trim for slower and then I use my mousewheel as trim for very fine trim adjustments.

Well, THANK YOU fine sir that did it!! Very nice in deed.

So the aileron OFFSET is 0C02 and the PARAMETER I am using is 64/16383 for the SWORD INCREMENT and 64/-16383 for the SWORD DECREMENT, and it works VERY VERY well. Much more realistic to the actual aircraft of which I fly.

For anyone wishing to use this for your ELEVATOR TRIM the OFFSET is x0BC0 and I use the same parameters for the SWORD INCREMENT and the SWORD DECREMENT as above.

The real benefit of this is I have now been able to offload the trim task from one of my axis wheels on my controller and I no longer need the mouse wheel as this is fine enough tuning for what I need.

Thanks so much mgh!! :) Where and or how did you find what the offset number was so I can experiment with others.
