First Generation V-22 Thrust Grip

Created for the first generation V-22 Osprey airplane, this thrust grip controls airspeed, nacelle direction (between VTOL and flight modes), as well as ECM and spotlight controls. This aluminum body grip is ideal for cockpit applications, land systems applications, and cargomaster applications.

With locations for two potentiometers, this grip is an exceptional choice for remote positioning operations while retaining many of the classic features needed in aerospace thrust grips.
