    I read (on a different board) that it basically has a vibrating relay inside. The discussion was along the lines of the short throw.....all of the range was about 1/4" of travel so you needed tightly calibrated fingers or thumb! Much faster response for drag racing.
    and interesting design, for sure.

      Couldn’t afford a fancy controller like this for drag racing. Used a doorbell button wrapped up with electrical tape.

    Thanks REL13. Talk about déjà vu all over again! I used all of those controllers back in the day except for the red Aurora one, I have never seen one of those.
    It sounds like the Revell controller used the mechanical equivalent of PWM.

      No wonder I can't find any Porsche 356 model kits! Great video!
      Interesting Revell control. Someone needs to take one apart. For science!
      And there is a reason that the Aurora controller was called the "thumb killer"!

        Thanks for all of the information, wow! I didn't realize that the Revell Controller was $10.00 in 1965! That's quite expensive! It's roughly the equivalent of over $80.00 today!

        The Revell Controller does have an incredibly short 'throw'. It is really sensitive but easy to get used to.

        Scott, yes there are some Porsche 365 projects on the way! I really appreciate you taking the time to really watch the intro!

        I think I'm going to be on the look out for an inoperable Revell Controller just to take one apart, I'm still hesitant to open the ones I have as they all work!

        Thanks so much to everyone for the great posts and wonderful information you have provided!

        I really appreciate all of the interest and support!
