Default In-Control out of business:

Looks like they called it quits last December.. too bad, those were some fine throttles and shifters they made.

http://www.incontrolequipment.com/

Came across the website because someone was asking about the throttle and shifter in my 21... don't know if Diamond bought out the remaining inventory, or the product??

Anyone know about it?

From what I've heard... there was a law suite filed against in-control from some dude that wrecked his dcb on havasu and told the cops that his foot throttle stuck??? So they closed up shop, rather than fight it...

So, because of some jerk-off's lawsuite we won't have the finest foot throttles available anymore

Diamond bought out the remaining inventory...

Bummer. I have both their (right) foot throttle and (left) foot trim in my Progression and love both of them. Since Marty has done all of my motor work though, I can trust the new source of parts.
