Elevator Trim

Post by marvk »

I can't seem to get my Sport SX to show the elevator trim. I have the trim sensor wired to the Aux. 1 wire, I can see the movement of the sensor on my EIS but the trim box is not showing on the EFIS screen. Any thoughts as to what I'm missing?

Not sure, but on the HX trim displays in the same panel area as the g-meter. If the g-meter is displayed, the trim is not. Do you display the g meter? If so try changing it to display only when over 2g.

The Aux1 Function has to be configured for Elevator Trim in SET MENU, Graphical Engine Display. This will enable the trim box, but the arrow won't display yet. To get the arrows working, the trim input must be calibrated in SET MENU, General Setup, Flaps and Trim Calibration.

finally got it figured out thanks to Jeff, had a couple of things configured wrong. First and foremost was serial two was not set to EIS input, the other was I had the wrong setting in 1SF should have been 250.
