Re: Wanted- Otto, Dead or Alive
I have had it completely apart, and there are no bulging capacitors. The inside is clean and dry, and free of obvious corrosion.
I think you might be thinking of the old Analogue tiller pilot.
Technically, this is the "Autohelm 1000 Micro". It has 6 buttons, and looks very similar to the newer ST 1000, except that the housing is black vs. gray, and it does not have the LCD display.
The 6 buttons are: AUTO, STBY, +1, +10, -1, -10. There is a single, red LED that indicates power, and operating condition.
That's all there is to it.
