Typical Stick Grip Switch Combinations for Rotoway, Revolution, Angel and other Helicopters:
#1 (thumb operated 4-way switch via China Hat) — most kit helos do not have an electric Pitch and Roll Trim System, so they use the 4-way trim switch for stepping frequencies through the presets in these new comm radios that are available, and use the side-to-side motion of the trim switch for Comm Flip/Flop and Ident. Or, if you are installing one of the 2 Pitch Trim Systems available for Rotoway Helicopters (that I’ve heard of), for example, use the side-to-side motion of the trim switch for Comm Flip/Flop and Ident;
#2 (index finger) — PTT
#3 (thumb side) — Auxiliary Fuel Pump (if it’s not ON all the time like some helos require), or Nav Lights ON/OFF (8636) push-button;
#4 (half way down, thumb side) — Intercom [Normally Open (8632 N.O.) push-button — some Rotoways have this because they’re not using a Voice Activated Intercom], or Strobes ON/OFF (8636) push-button;
#5 (pinky switch) — Landing Light ON/OFF (8636) push-button;
#6 (thumb operated, knuckle side of hand) — Engine Start Normally Open (8632 N.O.) push-button ( relay not required ).
Just check the switch you want on the Order Form for positions 3, 4, 5 and 6, and mail, FAX or call your order in.
So when you are ready, click here for a combination Order Form and Wiring Schematic to print. Fill in the top and all the blanks, then just circle the switch you want on the Order Form for positions 3, 4, 5 and 6, and write in it’s “Use”. Then FAX, mail, e-mail, or call your order in. Don’t forget your phone number, because if the “Use” doesn’t match what you have circled on your Order Form, I’m going to call or e-mail you 🙂 .
