McFarlane Introduces Experimental Aircraft Controls

McFarlane Aviation Products is now offering several controls for Experimental aircraft, including push-to-unlock, turn-to-lock, simple push-pull, and dual carburetor Rotax choke and throttle controls. They feature all-metal construction, a Teflon line, and options for length, inner wire, end configuration and knob style. Controls are available in both single and dual wire configuration, and the knobs can be personalized.

According to the company, the throttle and choke controls for 912/914 Series Rotax engines with dual carburetors can be installed cleanly, without using a splitter box. In addition to panel mount style throttle controls, McFarlane also now offers a quadrant-style throttle and both a locking (turn-to-lock) and non-locking choke control.
