    Junk Box Trim Wheel

    Post by G-GMDH on Sat Jan 06, 2018 6:02 pm

    Build yourself a TRIM WHEEL using an old PC mouse in conjunction with Peter Dowson's software FSUIPC for FSX and P3D.

    A small hole has to be made on the side of the plastic casing of the mouse. The trim wheel was made from the base of a CD stack holder with a screw glued to the central axis point. This screw goes through the hole you made in the side of the mouse and into the axle of the mouse drive so that when you turn the trim wheel it turns the mouse top wheel too.

    The cover was made from black corrugated plastic to hide the mouse and cable.

    You plug the mouse into a spare USB and using the FSUIPC software select the "Miscellaneous" window and "tick" the "mouse wheel" trim box shown in the picture.

    Did you use anaesthetic when you operated on the mouse?
