    Otter's trim

    Anybody know where the real Twin Otter's trim wheel./lever/button is located?
    Don't say "on the keyboard!!!!"

    Thanks.

    Tony, Plymouth.

    Not sure 100% but I think it is on the ceiling near the center post and could be crank.

    Just had a look at the maldivan air taxi world air routes dvd for you and it looks like the trim is controlled from a small boxed shape unit on the right hand side of the captain's seat, there are two buttons on the control column which look like they could be an electric trim system with the box at the captains seat being a manual overide.

    Had a good look above the throttles but the only thing that is there is the throttle friction and the flaps lever above that is the overhead panel.

    hope this helps

    regards

    Dave
