I put the flap switch in mine, but you could easily do similar with a momentary Otto. For that, I'd probably just epoxy it in.
I drilled a wiring escape hole and just tied it to the arm with a sleeved loop that gives plenty of movement.

Default Throttle handles

Where can I find just the black throttle handle for an RV 8A quadrant. Looked at both Baxter and 3D stick and rudder. If Vans have them I couldn’t locate them.

I bought a black anodized Hurst Shifter from summitracing with a momentary switch. Very good quality but a little heavy for aircraft use.

How did you run the wire? I’d like to move my TOGA button from the stick to the throttle. I’m also looking for a wireless button.

I've got to bite on this. What exactly does your TO/GA switch do? Is it tied into the F/D? I'm used to a TO/GA switch in the auto-throttle realm, but not here.
