First the SYS'One, then the SYS'Nav were upgraded to V3 some time ago; now the SYS'Alti and SYS'GPS have been too.
Each V3 instrument comes with a longer battery life than the previous versions, and different colour sides to distinguish them easily. The battery life of the SYS'Alti V3 has increased from 100 to more than 200 hours. The battery life of the SYS'GPS V3 has increased from 20 to 40 hours.
The hybrid SQR is the first product from Companion. It merges the advantages of the classic round canopy and the modern square. The extensive development process included computer simulations and practical tests resulting in a reserve with improved opening behaviour and enhanced pendulum stability. Unlike most square designs, the Companion SQR is not trimmed to glide in flight. The standard Companion SQR is one of the lightest reserve parachutes on the market. An ultra-light version is under development.
Big news from Naviter:”We announce the Oudie 4 and Oudie 4 Basic!”
The Oudie 4 Basic is a response to many pilot requests who really like the Oudie but would be happy to live without its high-end features. It was developed with the recreational pilot in mind who flies in complicated airspace, is learning to thermal or just needs a no-setup device to fly with.
This new feature combines all of the embedded sensors of the SYS'Nav V3 to instantly detect the slightest movements of the instrument. There's no need to compare vario reactivity any more, Syride have reduced it to zero!
