Condor Online Meeting

Share This Post

Saturday saw its first Microsoft Teams meeting to discuss the use of Condor. Condor is a gilding simulator which has been around for many years but recently has had major updates . While there is no flying for the immediate future due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Condor can keep you in the sky even if it’s just a simulator. During our online session Owen Grogan and I demonstrated the following items….

  • downloading Condor
  • where the landscape folder is stored on your PC
  • setup of Condor for rudder and joystick control
  • the ability to buy extra gliders and where to buy them
  • setting up multiplayer mode to host a game
  • how to access the game on the Condor game server
  • live demonstration of connecting to the multiplayer game
  • where to purchase rudders and pedals
  • talked on external PDA connection running XCSoar
  • how to download the Ireland maps

During this session we had 12 club members connected using Microsoft Teams. We were able to share our screens and watch a live demonstration of Condor. Owen connected via Condor server to trial out the multiplayer. It worked very well.

While the weather has been… well, it’s winter(!)… this provides the opportunity for some much needed TLC around the Gliding Centre. Between getting our gliders ready for their annual inspections, or just general maintenance around the club facilities, members have been tucking in! And while tucking into the work, sure why not tuck into a
