How about a Yaw String?

As the title suggest. I know we already have a slip indicator but the yaw string looks cool if nothing else :slight_smile:

I just read your message about the slip indicator, because when I was flying the last two days, I didn’t recognized the turn and slip indicator, and mentiond this in a FB group. Now I checked my Screenshots from the cockpit because I am still at work, and Bingo, I found it below the speed indicator. Must been blind due to concentrate to handle this beast.:rofl: Happy to read this. Will check it out later on.

Yeah, it’s not the easiest thing to spot. I miss my yaw string lol Probably be redundant to have a yaw string and slip indicator, but I think would look cool :slight_smile:

A yaw string is not redundant if you have a turn and slip. The turn and slip does not provide information as to the relative airflow over the aircraft; the yaw string provides that information instantly.

A late friend of mine used to fly the Harrier jump jet; he said the yaw string on it was one of the most vital “instruments” on the aircraft.

Can we have a yaw string, please? And yes I know it’s going to be all over the place in a hover… but in forward flight it’s so damn useful.

A few of you have noticed the obvious reason for the red string - yes, even Brit army pilots preferred the string to the instrument. The prime reason is that it was a very good form of old fashioned HUD :wink: as was the yellow horizon line on the bubble.

Yes! I learnt to fly in a R22, I miss the strings so much! Please take my vote.

Update: :disappointed_relieved: Well, I just read it will not be implemented. So sad…
