Today we installed the Radio Remote Control Box. The Type 4 (110J/71) control box operates the radio transceiver which is located in the rear of the fuselage. It has 4 preset channel buttons, labelled A, B, C and D. Next to each button is an indicator light showing which channel is active, The top button switches the remote off. At the bottom is a three way switch which is labelled “T-R-REM”. It toggles the three different modes of operation being Transceive, Receive and Remote.
In keeping with our philosophy to keep costs to a minimum, we have managed to utilise existing, readily obtainable components which closely match the look, function and size of the original.
Now to start on the Chassis Control Unit (gear lever)…bound to be an interesting challenge!
