This is a couple of my 1/2a control line handles that I have built. The most recent is the SIG variation that I had requested a scan of before. Just thought I would show off what I had been up to.

nice, i always like to build handles as needed, my favorite was a knock of the handle RSM used to sell...here's a wooden version of George Aldrich designed handle (also used for 1/2a) and a easy mod for a Goldberg handle.

They Look good. Curious as to how you hold the one on the far left?

Thank you. If you are referring to the one on the far right, the answer is honestly I don't know for sure. It does feel awkward honestly. It was copied from an older plan I had found somewhere online a while ago.

Thank you. I have liked and wanted to build one like the Aldrich one you have pictured but did just not know how to do it exactly. I may have to sit back and think about it and draw one up.

It shows up on the left on my screen. No matter, we must be talking about the same one. Is it designed for combat?

I can't honestly remember what kind of model it was. I will post a picture later when I get home from work.

Ok. So here is the plan that I got the handle in question from. It states that it is a 1/2a Recreation Aerobatic airplane.

Thanks for asking about the handle. It took a while to find where I found it, but now after looking at it again carefully, it appears that I drilled my holes for my lines on the wrong side. No harm, no foul. Just gotta drill 2 more new holes. Now it looks really interesting to hold.

I'm curious too Eric. I have one of those Goldberg 1/2A handles new in the package. Maybe Mark used a small pair of "split-rings" to connect his line-connectors? You can find those in the "craft-jewelry" department at your local Walmart.

Keep an eye-out for "Baltic-Birch" plywood for the hand-grip portion of a wooden handle. Baltic-Birch plywood has twice the ply's/thickness as conventional plywood.. and is SUPER strong. Use your jig-saw to rough-out the grip.

When you contour-sand the grip to comfortably fit your hand... the multiple-ply's produce a nice custom appearance.

You can then "slot" the handle to insert an aluminum plate to your liking. That's the challenging part.. but it can be done with a hack-saw and jig to get it on-center.

Sorry, i forgot to add, that the clips are just held in place with copper wire, use the smaller clips to even out uneven lines.

Thanks Mark , that's a bit of a draw back with the adjustment But, would just dedicate the handle to one plane and that would work till i buried it lol! I Love This Forum!
