V-22 Cargomaster Control Grip

The V-22 Cargomaster Grip was designed specifically for the revolutionary V-22 Osprey. With V-22's capability to carry troops and slung loads, the Cargomaster needs “intuitive” control over the load.

The thumb-actuated potentiometer reels the hoist cable in and out. The protected pushbutton is for emergency cable cutting. The intercom system is activated via the trigger, and the cargo light is activated by the pinkie switch (mounted on back).
