Comanche Collective Grip

Designed for the Comanche series of helicopters, this collective grip brings high functionality to the pilot’s fingertips. The panel face is over 4.5 inches wide, including the lowest button position, and over 2.2 inches tall. This large surface can be modified to accommodate any number of switch configurations.

Made of high-quality aluminum, the Comanche Collective Grip can withstand the test of time in the most demanding aerospace application. Flexible paint schemes and engraving complement the design.

With a modifiable panel, it is difficult to identify all the possible switch combinations. Shown here, the Comanche collective contains thirteen switches and one trigger. The thirteen switches may be selected from the entire range available: from simple pushbutton switches through the most complex four-way.

The flexibility in engraving also makes it easier to modify the base grip design to meet your design requirements. Guardian can engrave on the top, face panel, and curved surfaces of the collective grip with the notation and abbreviations required for your application.

The fixed position switches are the trigger, mini pushbuttons on the thumb-rest area (three different locations), and the mini 4- or 5-way on the thumb-rest position. The mini 4-way can be exchanged for a standard pushbutton.
