Old Heli #2

This one is a Schluter Superior, it was the latest thing in 1988. it has an OS .61 heli engine in it. I came complete with transmitter, receiver, servos and mechanical gyro. All I needed was a airborne battery. The transmitter is a FP-T6NHP heli radio. The upper left corner of the transmitter had at one time some glow fuel spilt on it. The two knobs and three switches were all gummy and hard to operate. I washed the outside off with methyl hydrate and a small paint brush. It took a little scrubbing but it came clean. They were easier to operate but still gummy and stiff. I took the back off and gave the inside a real good cleaning with methyl hydrate a couple of days in a row. The idle up switch and the two R MiX knobs were working now, but the inverted switch did not. I removed the switch and drowned it in alcohol for a couple of days. I used my little cleaning brush then gave it a good blow with compressed air. I checked it with my meter and it seemed to work as it was suppose to. It is a SPDT switch with no center off, Only the center and far connection had a wire on it. When I connected it up nothing happened when I threw threw switch. I disconnected the wires and it did not seem to make any difference if they were connected or not. So I re-wired the switch and tried it, now it worked as it was suppose to, the next day it was not working again. I tried shorting it out with a jumper cable and no matter which way I had the switch it did not work. I traced the wire for suspicious spots and found none. So today I cut the wires at different lengths and taped them and removed the switch. At my age I will probably never get good enough to try it anyway.
