B8 Flight Control Grip Datasheet
The MD Standard control grip keeps vital flight functions at the pilot’s fingertips. The large central 4-way switch trims up the helicopter for stability in flight and hover modes. Pushbuttons control the hook release (for slung loads) and float deployment (for naval operations). The trigger switch changes frequencies between on-board intercom systems and group-wide radio transmissions. The thumb-rest switch typically engages landing lights or spotlights.
