Other Controls

Hold a Sinclair port 1/Cursor/Kempston joystick left on the
initial screen to select control with that joystick port.

Note: these controls can only be used when the game is frozen

Keyboard recentering toggle R
Keyboard damping toggle D
Keyboard/joystick toggle K
Reverse joystick Y – Y-direction only
Reverse joystick B – both directions
Sound effects off Q
Sound effects on S
Start new game 1

The keyboard recentering toggle R will disable and re-enable the
recentering in roll and dive/climb control. When recentering is
enabled, a small amount of climb (or clockwise roll) cancels any
dive (or antclockwise roll) and vice versa.

The keyboard damping toggle D will disable and re-enable the
automatic damping of a roll, dive or climb while in keyboard
control.

The B key will reverse both directions of the joystick enabling
it to be held either way around. The Y key will reverse the
Y-direction only so that pushing the joystick forward will result
in a climb and pulling it back will result in a dive; roll will
not be affected. The B and Y keys can be used in conjunction.
