Re: Connected to Pilot Edge voice disabled

Just posted on another part of the forum as I've had the same problem: Rift S audio comes through as unreadable static to the controllers, but sounds fine on OBS streaming software. I'll try a driver install. FWIW, I also am running the Rift S insider beta software -- that might also be the issue. I...

Oculus Rift S Unreadable

Something interesting (and strange) has happened my last two attempted VR flights on the network. The mic from the Oculus Rift S I'm using comes through as static and unreadable to the controllers. I was preparing to stream using OBS, however, and on the stream the mic audio came though 5 by 5. So i...

Re: CAT 7 - why explicit class c transition request

You still need to make some form of request. "Destination El Monte" isn't clear if you're asking for advisories or just transition of the Charlie. If you're asking for advisories they'll give you a code and keep you until you're talking to EMT tower. If you're just asking for the transitio...

Re: Should I really be using pilotedge

Sounds to me like it’s absolutely for you. You’re transitioning from playing flight sim as a game to playing flight sim as a simulation of aviation. I’ve been flying flight sim since the Apple IIe but before PE didn’t really know a thing about how the real aviation system actually works or how to na...

That was fun. Thanks to all who joined in and to the PE controller who minded the store. Next time: Idaho.

Group VFR Flight This Sat 11 AM ET

I was thinking it would be fun to do another Saturday group VFR flight like we were doing last year. A little coastal action - maybe KOXR KSBA L52 KSBP (thought it would be fun to tack the “First Flight” onto the end of this one). I’d probably run the GoPro on this one and post a video to YouTube. L...
