Me 210 defensive armament

Hello everybody,

The Me 210 had two FDSL-B 131 barbettes as defensive armament.
If I am right, they could be used in unison or independently. They were attached to a drum powered by an electric motor with servo units controlled by a "pistol grip".
I assume it was a kind of "joystick".
My question is: if they could be used independently, did the rear gunner had two such "joysticks" at hand?

Thanks in advance.

Chris

1 Pistol grip. You need to read D.(Luft)T.6350 FDSL-B131-1 Waffen Handbuch for full explanation of this weapons system.
