B-7 Control Grip

The B-7 Grip represents the basic aircraft control grip style. The single-piece molded design gives the B-7 control grip exceptional strength, while allowing simplified switch replacement over the life of the grip. This proven grip places up to two switches (shown here as a pushbutton and a 4-way actuation switch) as well as a single or two-stage trigger in an ergonomic position for the right hand. This compact grip has been in many aircraft, from the Vought Corsair through current production of helicopters / kit-planes in Europe and the United States.
