This is about a reasonable tag that may be used so infrequently and has a good alternative that I wonder if we should cull it out of good tag hygene practice.
What order were space shuttle roll-pitch-yaw angles displayed in? is the only question with the attitude-indicator tag (1 question), but we do have an instrument tag (46 questions) which (probably) applies to a whole variety of displays and indicators that convey information to a spacecraft pilot.
Is the attitude-indicator tag the best choice for and indicator displaying information to astronauts during spaceflight? Or should it be replaced with instrument and allowed to fade away and out of visibility/use.
It's not a bad tag, but I wonder if it is a one-off tag that is not likely to be used again, so maybe synonymize it to instrument?
Or instead should we do the opposite and add it to more attitude indicator questions, there must be at least a few, including
- How are physical attitude indicators actuated?
- Orion cockpit instrumentation
- What instruments are necessary aboard spacecraft?
- Calculation of V1 (orbital speed) during ascent
