A few weeks ago I came across these neat wooden control grips on Aircraft Spruce.

Pioneer Aircraft control grip

The only problem was that the grips were for right hand only. I had cut the "Y" off my 601XL stick so the control column diameter was about 1.135" diameter. These on ACS were a maximum of 1" diameter. I contacted Guy at Pioneer Aircraft and asked if he could make a grip with ambidextrous contour and with an internal bore to fit my stick diameter. It turns out that he could, and he did. The grip is beautiful and fits great for either hand. There is a button on the front for PTT, or whatever, and another button on top in addition to the "Coolie hat" trim switch.

If you are interested in getting one of these grips, Here is the web site for more information.

Here is a picture of the end showing the aluminum bushing and set screw to secure it to the stick.
