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.

Merry Christmas everybody!

Does anyone have the part number for the 'press to transmit' button fitted to a De Havilland Chipmunk control column?  Or better still, a spare one available?

Regards,

Martyn

Good afternoon,  ladies and gentlemen. I registered on this forum  more than two years ago.

Like many of you, I collect helms. Thanks to your publications, I learned a lot of new and interesting things. For two years I just read. At  the moment,  I am asking for  help. Lockheed Constellation has appeared in my collection and I want to know the functions of these buttons.

Greetings and Welcome to the forum Eugene,  It’s great to have you on board with us. For those of you who don’t know, Eugene has a very impressive collection of yokes and Sticks, mainly of Soviet Aircraft , however a few western types are creeping into his collection. A fantastic detailed restorer of such items and very knowledgeable on his Soviet stuff.I am sure he will make a great contribution to this forum.  Даррелл

Good afternoon, Darrell. Thanks for the welcome. I am always ready to share my experience.

In my collection of wheels from Soviet planes there are western ones, but they are few: B-52, B-707, B- 727, B-777, F-227, S-2a, DC-8, A-310, L-1011 (TriStar). Now I have a Lo ckhiid Constellation wheel . Gentlemen, please help me find out the affiliation of these buttons.

Regards, flatter99

Hello Eugen, Front button is ‘Auto Pilot’ . Rear button is ‘Microphone’ This type of yoke was fitted to early Lockheed Neptune and Lockheed Constellation. Although the configuration of buttons on the switches for the Neptune was slightly different, from memory with a ‘Stores Jettison button’ and ‘Trim’ switch, Hope Help this helps.

Good afternoon, sir. Thank you very much for the information. If you allow, I will send this information to Nick. He only knows the autopilot shutdown button.

Sincerely.

Hello Eugene.  I would like to welcome you to the forum too.   I'm responding to some points made about your points made about Lockheed Constellation wheels and switches.  The wheel in your photo was (probably) originally installed in a Lockheed P2V-7 Neptune.  There are some (minor) configuration differences in the wheel/yoke castings used in the Constellation versus the Neptune.   There was some discussion on this forum about this.  See page 38. 

Also, looking forward to seeing some photos of the Russian/Soviet and other wheels in your collection.  Take care.

Hi Eugene, I will take a couple of photos of my connie and Neptune yokes side by side if you like. Unfortunately my Connie yoke is bare, but the Neptune has the switches. I'm in the middle east currently so I'll do it when I'm back home.

Welcome to the forum, flatter99, a shadow of it's former self, but this thread seems to be holding on! 

A first purchase of 2020 is this Soviet looking grip. Similar to early Mig 21 but not the same. Does anyone recognise it?
