Nice product, questionable connectors

  • By Douglas from Chesterton IN USA on Monday, October 13, 2008
  • Pros: Nice and small
  • Cons: Doesn't always work
  • Review: I bought 2 of these and one works fine, the other has an female Mic connector that doesn't make a good connection and has to be constantly wiggled to talk. Actually you should send me a replacement otherwise I will try to find another PTT switch to replace it with.

Price is its biggest advantage

  • By dianne from Carson City NV USA on Monday, June 16, 2008
  • Review: I have owned the Telex Push to talk switch and this one for the copilot's side. It is more sensitive to touch than the Telex one, such that the user tends to double click the switch before getting it completely on. This is called contact bounce in the electrical world.

Good performance at an OK price

  • By Daniel from Gladstone MO USA on Thursday, March 06, 2008
  • Pros: works
  • Cons: not the cheapest available
  • Review: It works. Price was not the cheapest available, but the cheaper ones that I bought elsewhere did not work, so I guess I got what I paid for.

Not quite the cheapest, but it works well

  • By Daniel from Gladstone MO USA on Thursday, March 27, 2008
  • Pros: Nice switch feel, they work!
  • Cons: Higher cost than competition's economy PTT
  • Review: I bought these to repace some new, cheaper, PTT buttons that I bought from Aircraft Spruce. Tried four of those, and none of them worked, they all would not allow the mic to key the voice activated intercom. Assumed that they were all from a defective batch. These, however, worked great. Although they are priced fairly reasonable, they were still significantly more than the Aircraft Spruce version. Oh, to be able to have high quality and the lowest price, too. But, not to be on this purchase.

Good Product

  • By Hap from Jensen Beach FL. on Tuesday, August 10, 2010
  • Pros: Concise: for a switch - It works first time & every time
  • Cons: As above; needs top yoke mounting
  • Review: I would prefer a small center button for PPT. This PPT switch does what it is suppose to do. It does require mounting on the top of the yoke which should be recommended in the instructions but I didn't see it there. On the side of the yoke my thumb kept hitting the corner edge of the switch sending out a carrier wave. Outside of that I recommend it to anyone. It is a good value.

It works

  • By Doug from Oshkosh WI USA on Wednesday, September 28, 2011
  • Pros: Provides clear transmissions. Easy to use.
  • Cons: see above
  • Review: The push to talk is well made and it was an easy install. It took some getting used to as my former push to talk was a vertical button type. The first time I used it I kept pushing it as I was controlling the plane. I subsequently moved the push to talk as far up on the control wheel as possible. I have had no issues with it since.
