Before you put on that cheap plastic knob and call it a throttle or a stick, be sure to ask yourself -- how do I really want to feel and function in my hard earned and long built cockpit? Like I'm driving my lawn mower, or piloting an airship of my own creation and hard earned cash. Throttle quadrants, grips, control devices and switches are the last appointments you'll make before flight. Finish it right and real with military spec. switches, heavy duty, ultra comfortable grips and the ultimate in smooth control action and feel.
Smooth and Accurate
Built from 16 different CNC and water jet machined parts and modeled after the Shakespeare style quadrants on board the finest WWII fighting machines ever flown and built, Fatboy throttle quadrants provide smooth, accurate and precise push/pull controls.
Roll Round Action
Typical lever action in homebuilt or experimental airplanes is via a 1/4 inch bolt and pinch nut. Take a 1.5 inch diameter CNC machined aluminum drum and multiply by 5/16th wide wrap around levers sandwiched by brass shims for 10x the surface area and you get super smooth action and absolutely no jerky movement.
Wrap around cold roll stainless steel levers provide super smooth no stick action. Bend your stock levers to personal preference.
Assault rifles aren't controlled by lawn mower knobs. Neither should your 2, 3, 500+ horsepower engine. Grab a hold of the same grip used on the AR-15 and feel confident and comfortable controlling your engine with this palm swelled all finger grooved Hogue grip.
Get a little fatter with the Romeo and add one extra switch station. Configure your throttle or matching flight control stick grip with this overweight fatboy grip. Super wide palm swells, cobblestone texture, soft yet firm polymer rubber gives your engine and flight control a super comfortable feel. Pictured here is a Romeo "3H" -- 3 switches with the 4-way military spec trim hat.
Your fatboy throttle quadrant can be paired with an identical flight control stick grip. Aesthetics and function when thought out ahead of time go hand in hand. Outfit with military spec toggle, mini-toggle, 4-way and a variety of push button switches and up to 6 switches can give you full HOTAS. Configure in either the A15 throttle grip or the new Romeo throttle grip as seen here.
