Shared cockpit weirds reactions !

Postby jojo86 » Thu Feb 22, 2018 9:58 pm

Hi,
I'm French so I'll try to explain my problem.

In first, thank you for you work this tool is really helpful !

With a friend, we tried you app no problem, we can connect and we can share control. But, only one of us can control the airplane. Is it normal?
For exemple, if I can move steering wheel, my friend can't get the control too...
We want to simulate a student with an instructor (my friend is a real pilot and I'm new with simulation).
Is it possible that both take the control in a same time?

I also saw that only one of us can control instruments...

Maybe it's normal, I don't know...
We tried with a male airplane and a C172 Cessna.

Thanx for your help.

Hi,

Yes, at the moment only one pilot has control. You can hand over controls from the Permissions option in the user list.

I'm looking at ways of making the hand over easier to do, perhaps with a key press. If possible I'll also look at dual control, but it was a bit tricky getting it to work well when I first tried it.

Hi Peter!
Your work is unbelievable!!!

The best way will be a dual control but I presume that’s really hard to do that...

Maybe it could be possible to do that with key press with a master and a slave?
Master can allow control to student by pressing a key, if the student do a mistake, master can take control by pressing a key (same or other key?).

What do you think about this idea?

Thanx good night!

(If you need beta tester for futures updates I can help you)
