Thread: Trim on default baron 58

    Default Trim on default baron 58

    How do you set the pitch trim wheel on the default Baron 58? There does not seem to be any scale or marking on the wheel itself.
    So Im not sure how to set it for take off.
    Thanks for any suggestions on this

    Look right above the gear indicator lights. There is an indicator that says Pitch Trim. Set that, using the wheel to move the indicator mark up and down.

    Does that help?

    Had a thought...then there was the smell of something burning, and sparks, and then a big fire, and then the lights went out! I guess I better not do that again!

    Thanks for the info Pat. Not sure which version of the Baron you have. I am using the Xplane default. I cant see any sort of indicator as you have described.
    See my screen shot of the area I think you are referring to.

    My deepest apologies!
    I made a false presumption that it was FSX for some reason. I really need to check the forum at the beginning of the post before I open my mouth. Or at least my fingers

    Now that I've looked at yours, though, may I ask a question? I see a mark on the inside of the pitch trim wheel. And one on the wheel it's self. Do they move relative to each other? If they do, could it be that lining them up together somehow sets the correct pitch trim for take-off, as you desire? Or does that inner mark move a certain distance for each complete turn of the pitch trim wheel, so positioning it at some point is the correct pitch trim for take off?
    Or is it possible that rotating the wheel a certain number of rotations, using the two marks as a reference, is the correct trim for take-off?

    Since I so adroitly stuffed my foot in my mouth, I'm throwing out possibilities, is all.
    I do apologize again...

    I have the updated X-plane & still have issues with the trim setting. I have set mine up on the joystick, both up & down using 2 buttons one for each. It usually works well but lately had an issue with combining the trim with the autopilot. As I'm sure you know, when changing the trim while in autopilot the autopilot will turn off & requires resetting, along with whatever else is in autopilot, hdg, alt etc.. Still working on it.
