    Finally came across some clearer pictures of how our yoke is wired. Not sure how they squeezed the wire thru the yoke but it's a clean installation. The wires come out near the universal joint and it's a coiled cord from there.

Anyone in the Northwest (I'm in Portland, OR) with one on the shelf I could borrow to scan?

    Did you ever get to scan a late model yoke? I have spares but I'm in St. Louis. I have a 57 22/20 and need to clean up the PTT installation.

    Thanks!

    Default Press to Talk Switch location

    Time has come to perfect my PTT switch location. Am thinking to put it right in the middle of the "Piper" emblem right in the middle "P", would allow either thumb, can run wire in shaft, etc. Any thoughts, ideas, images?colt panel 002.JPG

    What ever position fits you hand, allows activation, and full control of the yoke, and other hand on throttle. DENNY

    I’d be reluctant to drill the emblem. My Copilot ptt is on the bottom portion of the panel, next to the heat. Easy wiring and still in good reach.

    These emblems are hard to come by. I wouldn’t drill through it, but it’s your airplane. If that works for you.

    Sit in the airplane and pretend you are really flying and using the PPT.
    I think you will find it very inconvenient with it in the middle.
    Most people only fly with one hand on the yoke, so locate it where your thumb or finger will be able to operate it easily.
