FlySight navigation mode

Recommended Posts

Michael from FlySight emailed me a link to FlyBlind software update from 04/2016 that includes the selectable configuration, which is absolutely awesome! Finally I can switch between different DZs or modes on the go without need of a laptop :)

How do you guys have flyblind configured? I'm trying to get it to give me verbal distance, tone rate for how close my heading is to the target, and high/low pitches to indicate left or right to get on heading. I can get the first two, but not the third.

I'm just playing with it for now. Mostly as a learning exercise. Decided to finally mount and use my flysight



I listen to my vertical speed, once every 3 seconds. Post breakoff, I try to see how slow I can get my vertical, just playing around. I get better and better, beyond what I ever thought that I could do.
