MD Collective Control Grip

With space for up to nine standard size switches, this MD Collective Control Grip keeps pilot’s and operator’s hands on the controls, and not reaching for the control panel. Functions such as radio frequency selection, selective lighting systems, searchlight and spotlight controls, and autopilot controls are neatly presented. The optional trigger has been used for collective-locking functions and radio/ICS systems. Shown here, the collective head houses two toggle switches, one trigger, four pushbuttons, and three mini 4-way switches.
