- This controller quadrant offers TPM, flaps and trim wheel controls for flight simulators. The controller features push pull controls for each throttle, prop and mixture. A momentary switch for flaps, push up to raise flaps one notch and push down to lower flaps one notch, the switch auto returns to center. Also features a trim wheel with approximately 4 complete rotations for fine tuning the elevator during flight. This can be upgraded to a 10 turn potentiometer for 10 complete rotations for even finer control. Includes a desktop mount as well.
- No drivers are needed, just plug and play in Windows and Mac. Been tested and works perfectly in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 and X-Plane. It should work with any game that uses a joystick/controller in Windows as well. Does not work with Xbox Series X/S.
- This controller is 3D printed and hand made by me. Uses quality brand named linear sliders/potentiometers and uses a Leo Bodnar USB controller board. Includes 6' USB Cable.
- Dimensions: (Main Body) 12" Long, 5.75" Deep, 2" Tall (Trim section 4" Tall).

Purchased as gift and my son loves it! Arrived quick and easy set up.
I ordered from the Netherlands and I received the TPM in just two weeks. The TPM looks very good and works very nice. I like the trimwheel.
Overall excellent peripheral. Especially love how tactile the flaps switch is. Sliders could be smoother w/ less static friction if possible (I'm not sure how though). Biggest annoyance is calibrating the trim wheel; mine was assigned to the X axis, which when running Windows calibration needs to start centered. This meant a lot of trial and error finding the center of the wheel's range before beginning the calibration process. After doing that, it works perfectly. Another improvement would be to add firmer stops to the end of the wheel's travel range, and a center marker on the wheel and housing.
Hey Ean, I realize Windows asks you to center the controls, but that step is not necessary really, just move the controls in and out to their full range a few times each and rotate the trim wheel from one end to the other a couple of times and Windows will recognize the full travel.
If the friction is a little too much you can add a drop or two of synthetic oil to the shafts to help smooth/loosen them up some. Although they should loosen up a little over time on their own as well.
Let me know if you have any questions or issues!
Great product. Very realistic and easy to program. Highly recommended.
Well made and great customer service. This device has helped me feel like I’m getting the most realistic experience while I flight sim before my actual flights. Thank you Shawn!
