Default Push/pull vernier throttle.

All,
I was wondering if anyone made a push/pull and vernier throttle (without having to press a button). I like the vernier for cross countries and descents, but would like a push/pull for aerobatic and formation. Does anyone make one that does both? Thank you.

Default Mcfarlane

I have all Mcfarlane controls. Like em a lot. Haven’t done aerobatics (yet?) but fly loose formation and the micro adjustment on the throttle is excellent for maintaining distance and speed.

Another vote for the McFarlane vernier-assist. As much as we use the throttle, not sure why everybody doesn't have one. Once you have one you'll wonder how you ever flew without it.

Also, McFarlane is an advertiser on this site.

I'm curious how the sliding resistance feels on the assist? Is it close to a standard throttle with out Vernier? I currently have the huge handle (start shaped) push button Vernier and there is so much resistance it is annoying. Wanting to get into formation and aerobatics so I need to dump the current throttle for something without a push button lock, but dont want to give up the vernier control.

Appreciate the feedback!

The 12's use them.

Very nice to use, no issues with push and pull.

Micro adjustments on the vernier are very precise.

Don't pull the knob out before assembly because........ Oh balls.... Everywhere !

Guess what - they have a video on their YouTube channel that tells you how to reassemble it.

Another positive review for the McFarlane. The mechanism has a knurled adjustment for the amount of friction during push-pull - from easy slide (no friction) to locked.
