$60.00

This artifact is no longer available, as it is being returned to the sky in the warbird restoration project XP-82 Twin Mustang by Tom Reilly.  We are honored to be able to assist in this wonderful project.

Remote Control Unit MN-28 (C version) used to control the MN-26 Radio Receiver/Compass system (see Bendix ad dated 1939 from Flight Magazine). The receiver function tunes 150 - 1500 kHz across 3 bands, which were selected by rotating the center knob below the frequency band window.  The tuning crank below turned a flexible shaft connecting to the rotating loop antenna.

An example of an aircraft which used this unit is the RCAF Mosquito, see diagram.
