    Default Removing trim knob on stick.

    How do you remove the top silver knob with the elevator trim switch on the control sticks?

    Can't say for sure, but have you tried to gently pry it off? I imagine it is just a machine type fit, not glued, as one might need to get in there to fix things.

    I looked at my FX-3 rear stick this morning. There is a plug in the forward face well below the trim switch. Does this conceal a retaining set screw? (FX-3 has multi-switch grip on front stick and simple simple trim only insert on rear stick)

    Andy, I believe that plug on the front of the back stick is there in case a button is to be installed, as an example, moving the PTT switch on the wing root down to the stick.
