    I saw one sitting at the La Paz Bolivia airport back in 2001. Don't think it was airworthy. They used them to haul fresh butchered meat from the lowlands up to La Paz.

    I only pushed the button a few times on a 185 in Fl but thought it had to be pushed pretty hard. Missed a couple of times and hit it again, harder. Maybe like TV remote when the buttons quit working.
