G101 The basic G101 grip features a momentary contact, 50 milliamp, SPST switch on top that can be used as a PTT button. The G101 grip is made of semi-soft UV and oil resistant foam. The upper switch housing is made of nylon with a lightly textured finish and is 4.75” (121 mm) tall.
A SPST switch located on the top of the G101 grip can also be used as a PTT button.
Ray Allen Company modern design stick grips can be wired directly to Ray Allen trim servos. This eliminates the need to wire relays in your trim system. However, if two grips are used, you will need either relays or a switch to transfer the control of trims from one grip to the other. The G1 and G2 series hand grip is made of semi-soft UV and oil resistant foam and the upper switch housing is lightly textured nylon. The G3 series grip is a lightly textured, BASF UV reisistant composite.
All Ray Allen Stick Grips come as a complete kit including pre-cut and stripped 26 gage Teflon™ wires. RAC grips are designed to fit a 1” stick diameter with spacers included for easy installation on 3/4”, 7/8” stick tubes. All RAC grips have insets for labels and come with a customized, die-cut label sheet. The G3 grips also include three different colored faceplates (black, light gray and light tan) to compliment your aircraft’s interior colors.
RAC STICK GRIP MODEL G1
Excellent grips! Installed in my RV6 with no issues. Used some baseball bat wrap for the stick itself and the whole control stick looks amazing. Would purchase again.
This product was easy to install, functional, and feels good in your hand. No more pushing the PTT button into the grip like my old model.
Love it .. looks good and fit for my application.
Perfect fit for my RV-12. Cooler looking too! The plans call for bicycle grips from your local bike shop but hey, youre spending a lot of money on your new plane, why use cheap bicycle grips? Buy the real thing. Only downside is that it does not have any inset for labels as advertised. No die-cut label sheet included either.
Excellent quality. PTT switch is durable and has a positive response feel.
Good price, fit perfectly with sleeve. The wires were long enough to splice well away from the stick!

Per the manufacturer, the top of the grip can fit a 1 inch stick but nothing larger. A 1 1/8 grip will not fit.
The G1 stick grip protrudes 1/2" above the original stick height.
It does not have aircraft specific applications but it will work with 3/4, 7/8 and 1" sticks.
The vendor does not make this recommendation in the instructions or on their website. This can be done but it would be at your discretion and risk.
You would have to drill your own hole in the grip itself, there is not one predrilled. The plastic top would slide approx 1/2 into the control stick.
