Block II Apollo Command Module Rotation Control

18 Nov

Seldom-offered Block II Apollo Command Module Rotation Control. Controller housing measures 7.25 x 5.5 x 3, with its attached umbilical measuring 104″ long. Honeywell identification plates to one side identify part as “Control Rotation; Mfr Part No. DCG166D2; Contract No. NAS9-5269; Mfr. Serial No.10028DAK1016; manufactured 26 SEPT 1966.” Spring-loaded hand controller remains quite tight and returns to neutral, and the locking mechanism is a bit loose, but still works when slight pressure is applied to the controller. Handle retains the trigger switch which would activate the astronaut’s headset. In fine condition, with several labels and stamps to housing, as well as scattered surface marks.
