#468751 I have been using vPilot for a while now and it is one awesome software. :D

But yesterday , while flying at a busy night yesterday at Gatwick (EGKK) , I discovered this problem I have. While I was transmitting on the frequency , I found that when I took my hand of the hotkey , it delayed the transmission for a couple more seconds.

As a result my transmission started stepping on others because of the delay and the ATC contacted me and told me to stop doing that. Unfortunately I had to switch to text to keep flying...

Would like to know how I can solve this problem

#468759 Never heard of that problem before, not with any user of VRC, vSTARS, vDSR, or vPilot, and they all use the same method for scanning the PTT key.

Have you tried using a joystick/yoke button for PTT?

#468845 Yes , I use a joystick PTT button but I have also tried using a keyboard hotkey with no better results.

I want to explain what happens in detail.

On vPilot , when I press and hold the hotkey the transmission starts normal with the TX sign turning blue , but once I take my hand off , the TX stays blue and transmits for a complete 5 seconds before it stops , leaving a plain "zzzzz" noise at the end of the transmission.

I use VRC as well and they both are very similar but I do not have the extended delay.

I can paste a short clip of the problem if you wish.

What do you mean when you say they both are very similar?

Sure, can't hurt. Thanks.
