ES on W8.1 tablet?

Any updates here? I wonder how the audio in/our works and how you deal with push to talk. It would be great to transmit by clicking some real hardware key on the tablet.

 

Aww I wish somebody created just an very easy Android radar client for VATSIM, at least for TWRs

That's understood Gergely, Thank you. I'm about to take the plunge. Other possible considerations are:-

no wired network connection - need a good reliable wireless.

Needs an adaptor cable (mini display port) to connect an external screen.

Power cable connection is on the side and magnetic. I think it could be a bit iffy, if using it for those really long controlling sessions where the battery won't last!

Well I took the plunge! The good news is that Input Director works OK with 8.1 so I can still use my other computer to display charts and so on, running the track ball mouse and wireless keyboard over all the screens. ES runs on the tablet with a 22 in screen attached via mini display port adaptor. The USB headset and foot switch worked fine through a USB 2 hub.

 

I found a display port adaptor considerably cheaper than the Microsoft one. Pity GVCCS doesn't work now! I can use the touch screen for Teamspeak and possibly other things like electronic flight strips.

 

The main thing is, there are lots of things plugged in to it so I am working on a secure way to fix it to the desk as it's not heavy enough to stay put under its own weight.

 

For flying, I hope to use it for an FMC - vasFMC can be used remotely like that with FS running on the tower.
