Suggestion: A option to keep flying while "suspending" RC

Recommended Posts

A suggestion for the next version if it is possible. Include an option to keep flying while suspending RC. I would like to keep some of my long distance flights going while I get the grandchildren milk and cookies, and all sorts of other normal interruptions. If I don't respond to RC during these times, I get terminated. Pausing FS doesn't solve the distance problem. I would like to suspend RC, and then pick it up again when I return to the computer. This will probably offend the purists among us but would solve a practical problem.I usually fly non-MS aircraft, so turning the aircraft over the the copilot doesn't solve the problem either. Or, did I miss something about that option.Thanks. I really enjoy RC. I wish there were more varied controller/chatter scripts, etc. I started to do one, but found that I just didn't have the proper software or understanding to edit the wave files that I made. It would be great if there was some sort of package to automatically edit the wave files, etc.

if you contact scott campbell, he can start you down the road of recording. we'd love to have another voice.as far as suspending rc, that is what the rc co-pilot was for, to allow you to do things away from the computer, while he/she flew the plane.non ms aircraft, though is a problem.but once you are at cruise altitude, rc isn't going to be issuing a lot of commands. be sure your traffic slider is at 0you can also tell rc to pause itself and fs at a given distance.for instance, you can set it to pause rc/fs at 200 miles from the arrival airport. that happens whether you have an ms plane or not. then you can fly the last 200 miles yourself. check that outjd

Thanks, jd.Is it possible to set the traffic slider at 0 after you have started a flight? I didn't think it was.Your suggestions are all good ones and I have tried some of them in the past. But, being a grandfatherly age, I sometimes forget to set this and that...having a suspend option available would solve all my problems.I will contact Scott to see what is new in recording. We did make contact many months ago but I gave up after having software and understanding problems.
