  1. Very similar! Differences: There are some minor differences in the legends on the front. The picture of the plane is the same, but the Left-Right indicator on mine pivots at thee bottom rather than the top. Where your indicator has a large cap at the front lower left, mine has an orange lamp labeled "RELEASE." Mine only has one connector on the back (18 pins). If I can figure out how to do it, I'll post photos.
  2. I am looking for information on something that I believe is called a glide-slope indicator. What I know about it is: It is labeled: Weston Instruments Division MODEL NO. 898 TYPE NO.15 MFR’S NO. 521273 The front has: • A picture of a cross section of an airplane as viewed from the rear. • The horizontal needle is labeled "U" and "D" which, I presume, means UP and DOWN, probably relative to the nose. • The vertical needle is labeled "L" and "R" which, I presume again, means LEFT and RIGHT. Because airplanes tend to roll through turns I expect that th
  3. So, this may not technically be a "Glide-slope Indicator." The front has: • A picture of a cross section of an airplane as viewed from the rear. • The horizontal needle is labeled "U" and "D" which, I presume, means UP and DOWN, probably relative to the nose. • The vertical needle is labeled "L" and "R" which, I presume again, means LEFT and RIGHT. Because airplanes tend to roll through turns I expect that this indicates roll direction rather than turn direction. • There is also an indicator light labeled RELEASE. The back has: • A screw labeled “+” and one labeled “-“ which I exp
  4. I'm interested in military technology. The thing that interests me at the moment is something that I believe is called a glide-slope indicator (displays aircraft pitch and roll). I have one labeled: Weston Instruments Division MODEL NO. 898 TYPE NO.15 MFR’S NO. 521273 This is a sealed device, and I don't really want to open it, but I'd really like to know how it was connected electrically or what the interior schematic might be. I've googled every term I can think of and can't seem to find any information on this device. Thanks for any informat
