Hi guys,

What is the default script for the VC trimtab wheel? I am about to wrap up another project and I have the trim wheel already animated, but I don't know what script to use for it as there are quite a few in the modeldef. Any help is appreciated :)

I needed a trim wheel that would rotate a lot for my B737-200, so I animated my trim wheels for 400 frames, with 4 full revolutions per 100 frames, for a total of 16 revolutions.

I then used this script to animate the wheel:
Code:
  <PartInfo>
    <Name>B737_Elevator_trim_wheel</Name>
    <AnimLength>400</AnimLength>
    <Animation>
      <Parameter>
        <Sim>
          <Variable>ELEVATOR TRIM PCT</Variable>
          <Units>percent</Units>
          <Scale>2</Scale>
          <Bias>200</Bias>
        </Sim>
      </Parameter>
    </Animation>
    <MouseRect>
      <Cursor>Hand</Cursor>
      <HelpID>HELPID_GAUGE_PITCH_TRIM</HelpID>
      <TooltipID>TOOLTIPTEXT_PITCH_TRIM</TooltipID>
      <MouseFlags>LeftSingle+LeftDrag+Wheel</MouseFlags>
      <CallbackDragging>
        <Variable>ELEVATOR TRIM PCT</Variable>
        <Units>percent</Units>
        <Scale>81.92</Scale>
        <YScale>81.92</YScale>
        <MinValue>-16384</MinValue>
        <MaxValue>16384</MaxValue>
        <EventID>ELEVATOR_TRIM_SET</EventID>
      </CallbackDragging>
    </MouseRect>
  </PartInfo>
