Wiring Stick Grips
Today I started wiring the stick grips in earnest. This is the pilot's side grip. Lots of soldering going on here with wires going everywhere. It's really not that complicated...most of the wires here are simply connecting the grounds together. The wiring diagram for the push-to-talk button shows it getting the ground too, but I have two wires for each PTT button. When you simply close a circuit with the two wires, the PTT happens, so I'm simply going to solder those two wires to the PTT tabs.
Anyway...here's my co-pilot/passenger stick grip installed. I still need to put a rentension screw through the grip and into the stick. I'll go over to Ace tomorrow to pick some tiny screws up. I also need to find an appropriate connector that will fit into the stick grip to allow the pax stick to be easily removeable.
