New! Vernier-AssistTM Mixture and Throttle Controls
McFarlane Invents a New Type of Vernier Engine Control
This brand new type of control has all the fine adjustment benefits of an old style push-button release vernier control, with the simplicity, responsiveness, and jam-proof safety of a friction lock control.
These light weight controls use a patent pending drive mechanism. The new roller action vernier provides smooth, jam-proof coarse and fine adjustment without a release button. Coarse adjustments are made by pushing the knob inwards or pulling the knob outwards. Fine adjustments are made by rotating the knob clockwise or counterclockwise.
We currently offer these new controls for use on non-certified aircraft only. However, we plan to obtain FAA-PMA approval to offer the new Vernier-AssistTM mechanism as an option on many of our currently approved controls for Cessna and Piper, as well as our popular MC600 universal mixture control.
