throttle mod


Recommended Posts

Now that Autumn is here and we're wearing gloves when flying, my wife finds that

she loses grip on the throttle lever of our Bailey Quattro.

. Any suggestions for modifying the throttle unit to solve the problem.?

She has small hands and short fingers anyway so its a problem in Summer as well but less so.

On my Bailey, I have slipped a largish rubber 'o' ring around the main grip. This can then be pulled over the throttle lever to use as a cruise control. Due to the shape of the lever, by moving the 'o' ring towards the base you can decrease the revs, and moving it towards the tip of the lever will increase the revs. Quite fine adjustment can be obtained by rolling the ring up and down the grip with your thumb.

Just my solution, KISS.
