Hot Key to cage/uncage Directional Gyro instrument

Recommended Posts

Western allies aircrafts cannot perform sharp manouvers without losing directional gyro for about 30 seconds. That is correct, but there was also cage/ungage knob that allows pilot to cage gyro before performing violent manouver(s). 

Caging gyro would be helpful before perform sharp turn, combat turn, Split S , Immelman and other sharp manouvers as well as before entering the combat.

After that while flying stright again one could uncage gyro and immediately can read actual direction (waiting so log for automatic gyro revival is often very distracting).


That is why I vote for hot key that can cage/uncage gyro.
