the little cylinder under the pilots leg on the left side is the only trim wheel like thing i can se, but i know that it is a control for the throttle, i think it changes the trottle tightness if i remember right,

so where can the trim be?, i know you guys can solve this problem for mehttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gifso help me Robban and you FW190 freeks (freeks in a good way)

I looked but it wasn't on the cockpit reference link I have... The elevator trim gauge is there. I wonder if trim was electric on this plane...

May still be useful:

I have an excellent book called 'Cockpit' by Dan Nijboer and Dan Patterson. Inside is a labeled photograph of a D-9 cockpit.

It shows one trim control, called: 'Horizontal Stabilizer Trim Switch', yes switch, and a nearby 'Horizontal Stabilizer Trim Indicator'. Both are illustrated in the screen cap you posted, close to the throttle.

The 'indicator' is the instrument directly to the right of the instrument with the two red lights, which is right next to the throttle. It appears to have a white needle flanked by two oblique white lines.

The 'switch' is that tiny, gold/brown thing that's sitting all by itself, a bit further away from the two-red-light instrument, and toward the rear of the cockpit.

The book contains no information as to how these controls oparated.

AFAIK the trim is on the gas handle (turn like a bike's gas handle) - I dunnu for sure - could be prop pitch too

Just checked (gashandle is revolutions) - the elevator trim has a little clock - just right of the two red lights beneath the gashandle.
