This flap handle is a well built, durable, and cost effective alternative to the plain round standard flap toggle switch that exists in most experimental aircraft. This unit is easily installed over the existing toggle switch with the included set screws. This unit is powder coated for a long lasting, durable finish.
Note: This is the Flap Handle Only
Slightly over priced but functions perfectly. I even talked my neighbor into getting one for his plane too. All I had before was the normal toggle switch which is very slippery and I can only imagine will be hard to operate in anything other than perfect flying weather. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that has a toggle switch for their flaps.
Well made, should work well in my RV 4
Excellent product I highly recommend to all builders/ owners. Genuinely great design, machining, and finish.
Nice product, well made and fit perfectly
Love this product. Very well made and high quality. It doesnt come with the switch, but fits a standard size toggle. There are many switches to choose from.... IE momentary versus not, so this product couldnt come with a switch. However, it sure makes a nice addition to the panel.
I like it. The flap handle was simple to install over the existing switch and makes flap operation a no look procedure on touch and go landings and go arounds.
This is a very nice handle though it does not work with toggle switches with a toggle that spins. You would need the anti-rotation plate as well. I bought the handle alone and found our the switch I intended to use rotated. So I called AS and they were able to get me the anti-rotation plate by itself. This handle will work with switches where the toggle is pinned like the more expensive Honeywell switches - that is if you dohnt want the plate.
Beautifully machined piece. The previous review is not correct. The piece is machined out of aluminum and then powdercoated. It is most definitely not plastic!!!
INSTALLATION Installation is quick and straightforward. To ensure proper alignment and operation: 1) Before installation... Make sure the toggle switch is tight on the panel, and that the toggle motion is straight up and down. 2) When installing... Start with both set screws flush with the surrounding handle surface. Alternate from side to side, tightening each screw the same number of turns until both are tight. OPERATION These flap handles are a significant improvement over a toggle switch alone or standard vinyl covers. Much more comfortable. Make fine adjustments easier.
The fit and finish of the parts received were as shown. Slightly disappointed that this does not include the actual switch for the price. Not really clear the switch is not included nor recommended. Plus reading now that some hole drilling is required, was not clear either from the picture/description of the item for sale.
The flap handle mounting hole diameter is about .245 in diameter to fit a standard size toggle.
3/4 inch width.
It would fit but it would rotate with the switch.
