    cessna 172 style trim wheel

    Can anyone point me to a source for a real (or realish) Cessna-172-style trim wheel (wheel only, no electronics needed). I looked at aircraft spruce but couldn't see anything there.

    I made mine from scratch out of MDF, it's so easy.

    I have just drawn a rough guide on MS Paint for you to have a look at!

    Its very brief but you will get the point!
