  1. You don't need life insurance to get a mortgage (though obviously it may be sensible to do so depending on your circumstances) I'd probably keep the two things seperate. Different insurers will have different requirements as regards flying. I'd see what your insurance brokers says, and based on past experience I'd be inclined to use a specialist insurance broker for that rather than a mortgage broker. But that's just my opinion, having had pretty poor advice on more than on occasion.
  2. Have sent you a PM with the link to the activity. Not sure of the elevation, but I'm certain it is less than 500ft. Looking at an online elevation map, its about 250.
  3. Mine also dropped 500ft during an hours flight. I initially thought it was due to the setting on my watch above so was going to try without that, but maybe there has been a bug introduced. I also used the zero altitude at start feature. Pressure would vary slightly, but not that much in an hour.
  4. Thanks, menus look lots better. I tried this the other day, and worked fine apart from altitude was all over. I think this was because I had auto altimeter calibration set to Continuous within apps in my 945 system settings. I've changed to 'At Start' and will try again. Not sure if you got a chance to look at adding a save/discard menu at the end like the garmin activities. Unforunately as it is I have an activity for every failed launch
  5. Hi, Thanks for the response. That all makes a lot more sense now. I've tried it on the ground and will give it another go in the air now. I should make docs more clearer. Once toggled on, it only starts working from the next time you start the app. It will continue to zero each time you start the app unless you toggle off. Doh! That was a lightbulb moment. Tested and seems to be working now. I kept pressing that option expecting my altitude to reset to zero. It possibly would help if there was a bit more documentation if you select autorecord then it will start recording
  6. Dont take this as instruction, as I'm only at a similar level to you. But I tried lengthening the leg straps slightly and think it helped. This means when you feel the lift, the seat is already lifted that extra inch and not so 'underneath' you if that makes sense. Lengthen too far and you may struggle to get in the seat, but I think it helped me. Then maybe when you get used to the sensation, you can go back to how they were.
  7. Only tried this a couple of times but struggling to get on with it unfortunately. First time was ok. 2nd time didn't auto start. Just playing after the upgrade: 1. Zero Altitude Tog does nothing for me, just stays at circa 160 2. If I click Auto Record Tog, it just starts recording. No option as to whether you want auto record or manual record. It doesn't seem obvious when it is recording and when it isnt. Sometimes it vibrates, sometimes it doesn't. And the toggles menus make no sense as they dont tell you whether stuff is on or off. So at any point how do you
  8. Isnt that the polini one? The vittorazi is only on 1/2 fingers anyway I believe.
  9. Garmin Connect. Either phone app or website! Just start the app running and walk around the street for a bit. No need to fly.
  10. Back to the original question, I bought a cheap GH wing before training. Then I bought a decent wing after training. There is a big difference between the two. But it was launchable, and I did use it if the weather was rubbish, or there were dogs running around on public land or whatever. It depends if you have anyone local to help you. I struggled trying to follow youtube tutorials with it, because it just wasn't that forgiving. I'd have definitely had more luck with my new one. But once I knew what I was doing, I could launch it and handle it. So you may get somewhere wit
  11. You need Garmin connect app on your phone. Once it has synced the flight it will show in there.
  12. https://secure.simmarket.com/franz-luftfahrt-paramotor-fsx-p3d.phtml I've managed to get this working. Just .. it's a bit clunky, not sure how much of that is the model generally and how much due to the conversion, but it does work. https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/580813-fsx-addon-aircraft-in-fs-2020/?do=findComment&comment=4322844
  13. That's a very good point that I had never considered, and probably explains why I was taught left hand throttle. Then again I have seen videos teaching the A's D's method with A's in right hand, so I suppose any combo works, but whichever way you do it you make a very valid point that youd want throttle in the other hand. I'm glad I didn't switch to right handed now, as I did think about doing so.
