With the number of supplemental websites (Facebook, charts, slack) and apps (IF Assistant, etc) I am asking that you pay attention to and consider the amount of multi-tasking that you are performing while flying and controlling on a single device. ATC will often see aircraft disappear and reappear over and over. Often times planes will reappear on short final and causes havoc for the controller. This is even more of an issue during busy times like FNF.
Sometimes checking slack or facebook quickly will work, but other times spending 20-30 seconds away from IF will cause the drop to occur. I do not have the IF assistant but I know others have spent time on the settings screen and they dropped.
I know that both the server and pilots will have sporadic communication issues from time to time, but I am talking about anything that you can do to not cause any additional outages. I know that this is not an official root cause or anything and is purely something from observation. Just something to think about, thank you!
I am not blaming the devs or anything like that, nor do I want this thread to turn into “Why dont FDS do this…” sort of thing. I am simply asking to consider the multi-tasking that you do. If it gets out of hand I will close and set fire to this thread.
Edit : Thanks for the input. We went off track talking about features and other opinions so I closed it. Have a nice day!
