The G205 grip has five functions which include a PTT and 4 pushbutton switches.
The modern design G205 stick grips use four, flush fitting pushbutton switches to control one or two axis electric trim. The grip itself is made of semi-soft UV and oil resistant foam. The upper switch housing is made of nylon with a lightly textured finish. The G205 grips are 5.25” (133 mm) tall. The G205 grips also have a SPDT switch located on the front side of the grip. It is designed to function as a Push-To-Talk (PTT) button.
Ray Allen Company modern design stick grips can be wired directly to Ray Allen trim servos. This eliminates the need to wire relays in your trim system. However, if two grips are used, you will need either relays or a switch to transfer the control of trims from one grip to the other. The G1 and G2 series hand grip is made of semi-soft UV and oil resistant foam and the upper switch housing is lightly textured nylon. The G3 series grip is a lightly textured, BASF UV reisistant composite.
All Ray Allen Stick Grips come as a complete kit including pre-cut and stripped 26 gage Teflon wires. RAC grips are designed to fit a 1” stick diameter with spacers included for easy installation on 3/4”, 7/8” stick tubes. All RAC grips have insets for labels and come with a customized, die-cut label sheet. The G3 grips also include three different colored faceplates (black, light gray and light tan) to compliment your aircraft’s interior colors.
Does the Ray Allen G205 Stick Grip come with all the switches shown? What do these switches control specifically?
The stick grip (11-09920) will come exactly as pictured with the four buttons on top. It also includes an instruction manual to show how to hook it up, and what functions these buttons will perform. The image on the instruction manual shows these as being used for trim. Can I use the G205 for the G3X autopilot.
Per the manufacturer, the Ray Allen G205 Stick grip's buttons are Single Pole Double Throw (SPDT) Contact switches and would work if the G3x autopilot supports this.
