B-8 / MC-2 Control Grip



The B-8 / MC-2 Grip has become the most popular control grip in aviation. This grip has seen action in fixed wing aircraft such as the A-10, and rotary-wing aircraft manufactured in the United States and abroad. The single- piece molded design gives the B-8 / MC-2 control grip exceptional strength, while allowing for simplified switch replacement. This proven style places up to five switches (shown here with three pushbuttons, a 4-way actuation switch, and a single or two-stage trigger) in an ergonomic position for the right hand.
