Trim wheels - axis or encoders

Recommended Posts

I am considering to buy trim wheel box like this one form GVL (see vid 0:38).

In the video author says that both wheels are encoders (not axis). Well what would you think what is better for trims - axis or encoders?

My personal experience with encoders (I own a Virpil throttle) is they don't really work OOTB in IL2, you'd have to use joystick gremlin to get the desired results.

 

They work fine OOTB in DCS.

 

That being said there are tutorials on how to configure joystick gremlin on YouTube.

 

Hopefully more people will chime in so that you can base your decision on more feedback.

THX. I fly both IL2 and DCS and I am using Joystick Gremlin (great tool BTW).

 

What I cosider is that axis are way too off-sync with animated trims in the sim. 

May be encoders would be better in that aspect....?

I have that trim wheel, it works but you need to move it just a bit at a time or else the trim goes all the way to up trim or down trim.

Still it adds realism.
