Control Line Handle.
« on: December 15, 2021, 10:40:56 AM »
I never felt comfortable with this handle. I have another handle which I like so I'm passing this one on.

Brodak offers many handles which are similar in look and adjustment. Check them out!

33.00 plus exact shipping.

PM's please.

Ken,

There's nothing wrong with it. I explained why I'm selling the handle.

I only have one handle which I use and it has no finger notches. I'm not comfortable with my fingers being told where to be.   LL~

Kidding actually. I don't like the fit in my hand. Still a nice handle.

Buy it you'll have three. Priced right also.

Dear Charles,
I completely understand you. I used to say: "the handle is a kind of an underwear" -being so close to the person.
I always learned all my colleagues did not take a rest, until the handle is not absolutely fit into the hand, and holding style.
Naturally, it is not equal, how he holds it. Either grabs with full fist, like hoe handle, or just "hanging" the handle on four fingers. (I prefer this, with the thumb on small stand, or in a groove.
The absolute solution made by a late friend, a dental technician: he simply grab into a piece of Dentacryl*... 
*Everybody should be familiar with this or similar material in pink: this is the basement of dental prothesis :)

 I have one like that except it has a adjustment on one leg that can be tuned during flight to adjust level flight.
 The one i have was one of Big Jimís handled.
  I think Gene Martine made them .    I liked this handle for setting  up a new plane and i would copy the settings over to a hard point

I have a hard point which I'm not all that fond of but i like it better than the one I'm selling.

The one I'm selling is adjustable, I just don't need two handles for the limited flying I do.

I would take a few dollars less, after all, I don't need it, plus, I have to purchase a motor, battery and other stuff for my TEXACO 13.

It all helps.

Is there a picture of this handle anywhere?  I have such limited flight time now days that I absolutely hate having to do several "set the handle" flights every time I change lines.  I too use a hardpoint for PA but your method of setting it up is great.

If it doesn't sell you could make a new wooden part to fit your hand. I have two of those handles and they are probably the ultimate expression of an adjustable cable handle.

Picture if you have one?

Motorman,

I actually thought about doing that, but it would ruin the handle.

It's a nice handle and deserves a good home.
