Parma Economy Controllers

Postby RichD » Thu May 18, 2017 8:37 am

I saw on another BB that Parma will once again be selling Economy controllers. If I recall correctly it has been at least a couple of years since they have had them in stock. The Economy controller has been a mainstay of the hobby for many years and has been the most popular option for people looking to upgrade from set type controllers. Besides the complete controllers the supply of parts like triggers and grips dried up, making life difficult for other aftermarket controller makers that use those parts.

That is good news. I always liked the handles of these the best but as parts and new ones dried up, I had to change. The price point is also great on these!

It will be interesting to see just what the price point will be on these new old school controllers. If it is anything like the increase in price on the Big Mama Braid, keep your credit card handy.
