Dual-Throttle Setup  by Scott Jackson
Home > Builder Modifications > Dual-Throttle Setup

I've attached some photos of my dual-throttle setup. I've tried to keep it as simple as possible by making the left hand throttle connect to the center throttle right at the quadrant. This was possible by making the center-throttle lever extend below the pivot point so that it could be driven by, or drive, the left-hand throttle while the portion of it above the pivot was connected conventionally to the carburetor. Works well. Only problem to date has been a tiny bit of lost motion which I'm tracking down by bushing the pivot and clevis holes in the levers. Time will tell if the left-hand lever is too far aft-presently it's right in line with the control stick when the stick is vertical. Since the pictures were taken, I've cut the left throttle lever shorter so the ex-military throttle grip almost touches the armrest.
