I'm used to having a nice quadrant throttle control handle. Something I can gently hold with a small knob at the top, and also about 6 inches long, which allows for better precision RPM control. This is what I had on my last plane:

Now obviously I can't put this whole thing on the RAF, but I was thinking about taking the long handle, cutting it down to 6 inches, JB Welding it to a thin stainless steel tube with an inside diameter of 1/4 inch, and slipping that over the dinky little 4 inch throttle stick that's currently there. That should result in a far superior throttle handle.

Has anyone done something similar to this? Or can you suggest any other mods to improve the stock throttle stick?

Thanks for the input.
