    Thrustmaster 16000

    Any of you guys using this? I have had one for a while and like the selection of buttons and the heavier weight, but I cannot get it to trim neutral. I use the software to get it set and then in the sim the A/C wants to nose down so I either have to hold nose up with the stick or set the trim each time with the trim buttons I have set on the stick.
    Any ideas?

    Mine does the same when using the keyboard trims, - it will trim to neutral though as long as I don't use any elevator - then the moment I touch the elevator, it loses the trim.

    the trims on the joystick work ok though - on mine they are the 2 of the buttons on the left side group of 6.

    I had not noticed the difference. I will have to check that out. I do have trim set on the buttons on the joystick. I will see if they hold through the mission. Thanks for the input.

    I don't recall my trim neutralizing when I use the elevators. I'll have to look more closely. I have 2 buttons on my X52 set for elevator trim. They seem to trim in large increments and then I "fine tune" using the number keys.
