I’m thinking about picking these up.
Has anybody used these ones specifically for in-flight communication? It should work with all headsets, as its bluetooth. The range shouldn’t be an issue, as if you’re both air born then there should be no obstructions and you should have clear line of sight for miles.
Currently, we just use our cell phones bluetoothed to our helmets, but that doesn’t always work when flying in the middle of nowhere. This seems like a great cheap solution.

Sign me up for half of the cost. We need to try these out….

Sounds good! I’ll pick them up next payday. It’s not like we got good weather anytime soon haha.

Well, I bought them. They should come in next week and we’ll have to test them!

To anyone looking for an update to this, we haven’t gotten them to pair with two headphones succesfully yet. They’re supposed to auto pair with whatever is near, and it’s just a pain in the butt!

Update. We scrapped these and spent money on ICOM airband radios with bluetooth.

What frequencies are you using?

This is the Radio I use. I have purchased 3, and still have two. (One was removed from my car, without permission.) I have used these primarily for Free-Flight use, and they work well with, or without a headset. The sound is clear and noise-free. Some frequencies will require licensing to transmit, while others do not. These are UHF Radios, and do not get the static that you will find with CB radios.
Here’s one, of the many sites that carry them:

Nice Mark! I picked up a cheapy Baoefeng, I have yet to use it with anybody. So now I have airband, 2meter radio, and my cellphone/Bluetooth. I got the ICOM airband radio with Bluetooth, and I bound it to channel 1 of my Card Packtalk Bold. My cell phone is bound to channel 2. If channel 1 keys up, it will override any communication on channel 2. So that’s how I talk with my flying buddies/listen to music but also listen for air traffic. It’s working well, but was not cheap!

Sweet! That’s the way to go!
