Item 9143 - Apollo CM Rotational Hand Controller Catalog 463 (Oct 2015)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $5,000.00
Sold Price: $18,384.80 (includes buyer's premium)


Apollo Command Module rotation hand controller with a housing measuring approximately 7.25 x 5.25 x 3 and attached umbilical measuring 160″ long; the grip is a reproduction molded from an original as an exact duplicate. Reproduction grip is included as a display option at the discretion of the winning bidder; the inner workings of the grip measure 2.75″ high. The markings on the original Honeywell identification plate on one side have been mostly obliterated, with a later Honeywell “Modification Identification” plate below, reading: “NAA/S & ID Cont No ME901-0704-0802, Mfr Part No CG166H9, Contract No M5J7XAN-450011, Kit Serial No 10028DAK1014, Accep Date 9 May 73.” The controller is marked as unit “1” on the top of the housing and in two places on the cable, indicating that it was either installed in a Command Module or set to be installed. The umbilical is wrapped in a plastic sleeve labeled “Remove Before Flight or Testing.” Includes the rare original plastic covering for the hand grip with large caution labels affixed to both sides. In fine condition, with scattered marks and dings to the housing. This piece would be used for controlling spacecraft attitude, and the handle pivots at the palm for pitch up/down, through the center of the handle for yaw left/right, and inside the housing for roll left/right. Lever switches at the front lock and unlock the joystick for operation. An exceptional piece of tactile Apollo spacecraft hardware.
