Crash

Written by kbasan on Apr 21 2019, 8:50 AM.
IMPORTANT: For 0.9.0 users: In order to avoid a crash in swift while doing an IFR flight, make sure to NOT squawk 1200 for the entire flight. This causes the server to try to change your squawk as soon as you above 50 kts ground speed. But the packet is broken in swift and crashes it. The issue is fixed in the next version, but I thought you want to know before. You can use code 2000 instead.
