The pilot and copilot each have a set of controls. They
are interconnected under the cockpit floor so that if one
set is moved, the other set moves in the same direction.
Each set of controls contains a pitch and roll control
stick, a thrust control, and yaw pedals.
Cockpit control movements are transferred through
linkage to the transfer bellcranks and vertical
controls in the lower section of the controls closet.
Contained within this closet are the integrated lower
control actuators (ILCA), differential airspeed hold
actuator (DASH), and two pallet assemblies. The pallet
assemblies contain spring assemblies, magnetic brakes,
cockpit control drive actuators (CCDA) with integral
magnetic brakes, viscous dampers, and control position
transducers. The spring assemblies and magnetic
brakes provide artificial feel to the cockpit controls,
since normal feel is lost because of the hydraulic assist.
Connecting links in the upper closet with 26 have a
special coating that increases their resistance to heat
