    Here is a 3D version of the handle.

    The handle will fit all controllers using Parma, JK and Red Fox handles as it maintains the same distance between the top two mounting holes.

    Will it be translucent or solid? What colors will it be available in?

    Jeff, the handles will be clear and translucent black for the first batch. The gray handle above is a computer generated render of the handle so it does look like it is made from solid Lexan.

    Here is a 3D print of the handle with my circuit board installed to give you a better idea of the handle proportions and fit. The fins on the front of the handle can easily be cut to have access to the wiper bands for cleaning. The bottom of the handle has been extended 5/8" so adult hands will no longer hang over the handle end.

    My new handle will fit most any brand electronic controller or Turbo frame made with little or no cutting.

    Below the handle are the 3 different triggers I will offer. The triggers will be available separately to upgrade any controller now using a Parma, JK or Red Fox trigger. Transferring your old hardware to the new trigger design will be easy.

    Looks good Jim. I still need to send you my controller for a refurbish that we talked about a while back.

    Finally, I have some more news about my new controller handles and triggers. I will have a small run of handles available by Jan 27. After getting a short sample run some changes needed to be made to the mold which are now complete. I will post pictures of the production handles, triggers and trigger hardware at that time.

    Anyone going to the NASRA warm up race in Texas Jan 17-19 can check out my new handle and trigger on PA Watson's controller.

    A small shipment of clear handles will ship to Distributors Jan 30. The part number for the clear handle is # DD850 @ $16 retail. The handle includes screws and washers needed to fit any controller using a Parma, JK or Red Fox handle. The handles also work with the Parma turbo frame. I take paypal. Little to no cutting or grinding will be needed for installation.
