    Hello, I have a CLS-E Mk II, using the “hardware trim” option in MFS 2020. I have a USB Cessna-style trim control that I would like to use. Is there a way to use this with “hardware trim”? I.e., is there a way to make an external analog input control trim?


    Hi Ropp29,

    I asked this very question recently (note I use Xplane 11). The answer was

    ‘Have Trim wheel plugged in, and FIRST start CLS2Sim, only afterwards start the sim.

    Don’t map the trim wheel in the simulation. In CLS2Sim profile manager you must see the trim wheel.

    Leave as is and instead go to CLS2Sim > Profile Manager > Trim tab.

    Enable: YES

    Velocity: Have to experiment for each plane. Lower if movement too jerky.

    Movement: Leave at 100% ! Important !

    User external trim : NO

    Trim Compensation: NO

    Use Hardware trim: NO’

    I hope this helps?




    @Ropp29: Was that successful? I’m wondering as I’m also using external trim wheel, but so far did not try to set it up in CLS2Sim.

    @Brunner: Couldn’t CLS2Sim read out the simulator’s trim setting (or even just the force on the elevator?) to make the right pitch position and force?
