I bought a promising looking Dasco Scientific grip which looked a bit like a back seat Tornado stick. The fwd/rev controls suggested ground based. Fifteen quid wasted.

Hi Visotka1:  Nice work on the restorations of the An-12, IL-76 and AN-24 wheels!

MartynP:  Regarding that unidentified grip you have:  I suspect "SLAVE" isn't an acronym but refers to slaving (for instance) a targeting radar to the seeker head of a weapon.  POL could mean polarization of the radar sensor (vertical v horizontal).  FOV as field-of-view makes sense.  

These are semi-informed guesses....nothing more.

Hi Swifter and everyone -  thanks for the comments. I have no idea one way or the other. I'm sure it's not a pilots grip, but the acronyms mean nothing to me.
