RCA82A/83A 3" INDICATOR
Our turn coordinators are very popular and can be found in many production aircraft around the world. They contain an electrically driven gyroscope which is supported in a gimbal inclined to the horizon so that the instrument senses roll as well as yaw.
The RCA82A/83A Series is an all-volt instrument that works from 11 to 30VDC. The turn motion is presented by an airplane symbol banking on a fixed horizon with a power warning flag.
TURN AND BANKS
RCA56 SERIES 3" TURN & BANK
Our popular RCA56 Series Turn-and-Bank is a rate-of-turn pointer controlled instrument powered by an electrically driven DC precision gyro. Along with it's built in inclinometer, It gives the pilot accurate turn and bank information. The all-volt RCA56 Series works from 11VDC to 30VDC and is available in a variety of configurations.

A turn-and-slip indicator will sense rotation only about the vertical axis of the aircraft. It tells nothing of the rotation around the longitudinal axis, which in normal flight occurs before the aircraft begins to turn.
A turn coordinator operates on gyro precession, the same as the turn indicator, but its gimbal frame is angled upward about 30° from the longitudinal axis of the aircraft. This allows it to sense both roll and yaw.
The inclinometer or "coordinator ball" shows the relationship between the bank angle and the rate of yaw. The turn is "coordinated" when the ball is centered. The aircraft is "skidding" when the ball rolls toward the outside of the turn and is "slipping" when it moves toward the inside.
