I Get Scolded A Little Quick!

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if there is a way of setting Radar Contact so that I get a little more of a chance to set my altitude and heading without getting scolded so quickly.Radar Contact ATC will give me an altitude and immediately I'll begin cranking the knob, but before I get a chance to set it, they are yelling "HAY DORK! I thought I told you to climb to FL200. Were you born a misfit or did it just happen over time!! Now get your butt up there before I have your pc pilot's licensed revoked!"This is making me noticeably insecure and I was hoping there is a setting somewhere that will provide me with a just a wee bit more time to set the altitudes and headings.Thank you,Bob

Hi Bob,Radar Contact ATC will give me an altitude and immediately I'll begin cranking the knob, but before I get a chance to set it, they are yelling "HAY DORK! I thought I told you to climb to FL200. Were you born a misfit or did it just happen over time!! Now get your butt up there before I have your pc pilot's licensed revoked!"Funny, I don't remember recording that sentence. ;-)Seriously, it sounds like you have Otto on comms so his reply will be instantaneous. Try switching to manual comms and then don't ack until you have started your climb.This has been tweaked in v5.Cheers,

"Funny, I don't remember recording that sentence."Well, it may be a just a wee bit of an exaggeration, but it is just my interpretation based on my deflated and wounded self-esteem :-badteeth after the sever scolding.:-violinSo, you say your the one that recorded that?...Mmmmmm:-bluegrabI appreciate your advice and your right, I do have it on auto respond. I will switch to manual and see if that mean ATC man will be nicer to me.I will be watching out for v5. I have used Radar Contact for a while now and love it. It's still by far, the best ATC program out there.Thank you,Bob

Hi Bob,Well, it may be a just a wee bit of an exaggeration, but it is just my interpretation based on my deflated and wounded self-esteem :-badteeth after the sever scolding.:-violin :-lol If you think that one is bad trying landing after a go-around instruction! :-eek So, you say your the one that recorded that?...Mmmmmm I recorded it as did all the controllers. I didn't decide on the words - get your lawyer onto JD ;-)I will be watching out for v5. I have used Radar Contact for a while now and love it. It's still by far, the best ATC program out there.Thanks. It's always nice when people express their appreciation.

Sorry Dave, no. Updates (4.1, 4.2) are free but v5 is a big rewrite. I believe existing owners get a discount but JD can advise better than I.

"I recorded it as did all the controllers. I didn't decide on the words - get your lawyer onto JD "I buy too many flight sim addons. I can't afford a lawyer! Think he might want to settle out of court?:-hang
