MD Combat Control Grip

Originally required for the Mexican Navy, this grip demonstrates Guardian’s ability to modify grips for specific applications. This grip adds more capability with the thumb-actuated rocker switch, while retaining the flexible panel face, thumb-actuated pushbutton, and trigger.

Manufactured from aluminum, this grip is strong and durable, and is ideal for flight control and control box applications.

Optional Switches1

S-1 : ICS/Radio rocker switch, often referred to as an “on-off-on” or “momentary, center-off” switch.
S-2 : Pushbutton switches are available with shrouded collars to help prevent accidental actuation.

S-3 : Large 4-way switches are used to set the trim of the aircraft, or can be used in non-flight applications for positioning lights, sensors, or guiding systems.

S-4 : Pushbutton switch. Available with red, black, or grey cap. Available with aerospace rating or commercial grade, and low current (below 15mA) (see also S-1)

S-5 : Tiny pushbutton switches are ideal for locations on grips where space is a concern, or the depth behind the panel is restricted by the design of the handle, or a bundle of wires.

T-1 : Trigger switch. Available in either single-stage or two-stage actuation, and with grey color trigger.
