Help!
Centering trim buttons on the Blade MLP4DSM. TX

How can you tell when these babies are centered?
Thanks.

That's one that beeps, right? Long beep means center.

So you need very good hearing then. They should put that in the manual: "before operation, go get your hearing checked, or buy a better TX first..."

Thanks to you all for your comments.
Beeps at center...is there a way to know when it's maxed out?

Maybe it stops beeping when it hits end of range.

Putting the up/down switch buttons is simpler/cheaper than the mechanism that actually moves the pot. Less a drawback on their programmables where the display shows where the trim is.

It beeps slightly longer or shorter depending on which way you are going, when you reach the limit either way it triple-beeps, and when at neutral it makes a noticeably longer beep (very easy to tell ).

I had to push the button all the way one way, hear the beeps, go back & hear how it changes when it reaches center. Longer beep? Two beeps? Whatever it did, I had to listen to it to figure it out.
