It simply causes the stick/yoke to move the elevator trim at the same time it moves the elevator. It does not appear on the panel (making it easy to place) but any trim indicator on the panel will show that it's working. Also works with Prepar3D and FS2004. By Chuck Dome. Public Domain.

It's very simple. Whenever you push forward on the stick/yoke, the "down" elevator trim increases. Whenever you pull back, the "up" trim increases. If you need more down trim, just push forward, and vice versa. Just be sure not to hold the stick/yoke back too long on the takeoff roll or you will have too much "up" trim on rotation. Keeping an eye on the trim gauge will help. I personally like this auto trim better than the one you can enable in the fsx.cfg file. I also find it simpler than buying/installing/using a trim wheel controller.

If you don't like the gauge, just delete the line(s) from the panel.cfg file (and, again, don't forget to save the changes to the file).
