Parma brought back to life

Postby BARC 1 » Fri Aug 11, 2017 9:19 am

My Favorite controller is my Old Parma analog. Since I went Carrera Digital the old Parma handle was collecting dust, and I wanted to do something about it. First of all let me say the Carrera plunger controllers are comfortable and work great, although I was getting an annoying spring squeak out of the controller I was using the most.

Anyway I took the guts out of a Carrera controller and fit them into my Parma Handle. I needed to cut the circuit board, but that was easy to do as the board is large and is easy to trim without worrying about any electrical tracing. Some modification to the Parma trigger and I soon had it fashioned to slide the digital speed control. The digital button was moved to the top of the Parma handle and is easy to trigger.

Parma back in action.

Great idea. I have never seen this done before.
I know there are a lot of guys out there that really don't like thumb plungers.
Not me.I have both. And you're spot on about the Carrera digital controllers.They work very well.
