Default SIDETONE level

I flew today without my Garmin Virb or Bluetooth adapter hooked up to my headphones. The SIDETONE level was WAY too high at 60. While taxiiing for takeoff, I adjusted it down to 50 so it didn't break my eardrums, but it was still too high. I flew with it anyway for two trips around the pattern. I'm going to have to fiddle with that setting some more and I guess set it differently depending upon what's hooked up.

If you get used to holding down the button to invoke memory settings.... you can make your changes inflight. You get instant feedback that way.
I set the number 2 headset mic squelch a bit tighter... so it does not open when set on the floor... as that is a noisy area. And try out the weather receiver. It works all over the U.S.
