switch, placarded ARM, OFF and ON, also on the
transmitter case, may be actuated by inserting one
finger through a small, round, spring-loaded door on
the left side of the aft fuselage (fig. 3-8). The trans-
mitter unit is accessible through a service panel
located on the bottom of the aft fuselage.
