Wet or whiskey compass

The Whiskey Compass is there for general guidance should the DI fail and for setting the DI with. It is prone to swinging when accelerating and slowing down and lags behind in turns. If the aircraft gets hit by lightening the pilot should arrange on landing to have the compass realigned by an engineer as magnetic properties in the lightening could affect the needle.
