|RANS has developed a control lock that attaches to most models. The lock consists of a bungee cord, a couple of hooks and cap that slips over the top of the control stick. It installs in seconds and the hooks feature adjusters that allow the bungee tension to be set for a particular model. One nice aspect of the control lock is that it is not hard bolted so if an outside force against the control surfaces occur, the bungees will absorb the load and still prevent the surface from hitting against the stops.
