Hi All,
I'm Hans, living in France and testing Skydemon vs. SDVFR. What is the philosophy of Skydemon, when I just want to fly a few circuit patterns or a short excursion into the training area and back? When I start Skydemon, it asks for a route planning, but I would like just go & fly, leaving Skydemon as moving map, but also activating the ILS and circuit path indication on the map. I saw the moving map and the traces (log), but I couldn't find any way to activate the ILS.
Obviously, up there in the air, I have other things to do, rather then fooling around w/ displays. I'm therefore looking for a guideline "how to use Skydemon w/out route planned".
Best Regards
hk

What about ‘Create Route’ with five or ten nm radius from your home airport?

Why do you need the ILS feature to fly circuits?

Just to see, how it works in actual practice in my well known home environment; as I said, I'm testing it; its all new 4me.

As Grahamb said. Then when you are ready to return to your home airfield select "Direct To" [home airfield}, select type of re-join (standard overhead/long finals etc.), and "ILS" should start working.

You don't have to plan a route at all, just open SkyDemon and press Go Flying.

As others have said, you can "plan" a local flight from one airfield, which is a simple action and might be best for your needs in the circumstances you've described.
