I'm looking for ideas for a good two place intercom. <br><br>I currently have the Ultra-com from Comtronics Engineering. But lately even with the Radio volume turned up I can hardly hear the radio. I can turn up the intercom volume but then the passenger blasts me out. I'm also using the helmets from Comtronics. <br><br>I've really never been happy with the comtronics unit. Does anyone have experience with another intercom that they could recommend. I would also want it to work with the helmets I have.<br><br>I have left a message with Comtronics asking if they can do a repair/upgrade to it. But I haven't heard back from them yet. And I still would like to try a different unit.<br><br>Chuck Roberg<br>Naperville, IL

Gyrochuck, a piece of garden hose is the cheapest way to go, and the quality will not deteriorate due to not much quality to start with!!!!!!!!!!!  LOL<br><br>Sorry to be so flippant. Between 1990 and 1997 I used the comtronics dual set up on my oen frame A/Command trainer. The main problems I found were the moisture oxidizing all the plugs, and the sockets in the intercom box would need changing every so often (2years). I used to have a can of aerosol electrcal cleaner on hand all the time.<br><br>Aussie Paul.

Re: Looking for a good 2-Place intercom

Good subject! Right now I have 1 Heli pro helmet from Comtronics. I like it but would not waste the money on the Gentex shield that I got with it. It does nothing to keep wind out of my eyes!<br><br> I will be buying a second helmet & intercom system this winter or when money allows. I always figured on Comtronics. They have new products ,according to their ads.<br><br>  Paul, I didn't realize you used your Air Command up until 97. What did you do with it? Is it still flying? Any pics of it?
