Microphone wind noise

Postby wackomedic911 » Tue Dec 19, 2017 4:15 pm

Hi guys...
I need some help from the more clever, and the older guys here please.
So, currently I fly with a open helmet, and use a GT flycom headset.

BUT, the wind keeps triggering my intercom, even with squelch set to its highest. I am figuring I need a bigger mike muff, but i have no idea where to look! is there any other fixes I can look at?
I really like the open helmet (Praetor) especially in the summer, but the wind noise is driving me mental! (**)

thanks in advance. (^^)

A sponge from a pill bottle with a hole drilled with a soldering iron or warmed up screw driver, else "steal" some cotton swabs from your wife's "night" routine and wrap that around and tie it down with an elastic band.
