Default SOLD - Military Stick Grip

This isnít some imitation military grip, itís the real thing. According to the part number, itís from a Huey helicopter cyclic stick. Itís new old stock, but not in new condition. It was removed from a homebuilt that never flew. Itís probably more than 40 years old.

This is a grip for your right hand. I only have this one.

The buttons all feel fine but Iíve not tested any for functionality.

The buttons are:

Coolie hat trim switch, left-right and forward-back,
Button just to its left,
Button mid-height on the left,
Two-position trigger switch,
Bottom left little-finger button.

There are no buttons on the very top.

Hereís the left side of the grip.



And the right side:



Hereís a side view of the grip and the wires:



And of the bottom.



The stick hole is 1.125Ē diameter so for a 1Ē stick, youíll need a spacer. A piece of tube will work fine. It mounts with one screw, included, that has a special press-in nut, included. The entire grip including the wires weighs 1 pound, 1/5 oz. The wires are 27Ē long, in two bundles of 7 each.

The overall grip condition is good but not pristine. Thereís a few marks and marred places and the grip is no longer shiny. Still, it feels good in the hand and the buttons are all crisp.

Iím not warrantying it. If you buy it, itís yours.

Letís try $200, shipped priority mail in the U.S.

Please no PMs.

You can email me using the VAF system. Click on my David Paule name above and a pop-up will show. One of the options is email. Thatís the one. Thanks!

Dave

Default Stick grip

I’ll take it if Wayne doesn’t. Wayne, you don’t really want to put a military grip in an RV-10 do you? It really belongs in a 4/8......
