    Remote Instruction

    With COVID-19 causing a temporary shutdown for Williams Soaring Center, I am offering remote instruction using Condor. We have probably spoken about Condor before, and you will know there are some limitations as to what we can actually do in an instructional setting, however there are quite a few things we still can do. Some of the things Condor is good for is, cross country training, thermal technique learning more about speeds to fly and MC theory, besides that condor is great fun to fly with other people, much more entertaining then by yourself. I would prefer to have voice communication while we work together, ideally we would use Skype. So first thing to do if you are interested is buy a copy of condor2 if you don't already have it. You will also need a joystick. https://www.amazon.com/Extreme-3D-Pr...4728776&sr=8-1 this is a good joystick and what I use at home. Rudder pedals are optional as the stick has a twist rudder but I wouldn't buy cheap pedals these are the pedals I use in the office https://vkbcontrollers.com/?product=vkb-t-rudders-mk-iv then download Skype if you don't have it already. I will be able to fly pretty much any time of the day if you are interested. If you would like to talk to me directly before moving forward you can get my phone number from WSC's office (530) 473-5600. Well I hope this all passes by quickly and we can put what we learn on the simulator to practice with the real thing. Lets go have some fun learning to fly via simulator.

    I don't own any of this equipment so I can't vouch for any of it but Pablo's post reminded me of these reviews that I had seen in the past, in case anyone was interested.

    And there's a joy stick that is, to me, way overkill for Condor what with the throttle and everything but maybe someone is working on their power rating too. ;-)
