Skytraxx produce well designed and fully-supported flight instruments to a high standard. They are also pioneering live data-sharing services (FANET) and they already have a working solution for FLARM (a way for paraglider pilots to automatically appear on the instrument displays of glider pilots and general aircraft).
This year Naviter introduce Position Sharing for the Oudie via the Open Glider Network, bringing many additional possibilities to the freeflight community including in-flight tracking and identification of fellow pilots plus future developments like ‘passive’ FLARM beacons. The Oudie 4 and Oudie 4 Basic continue to be a big success, perfectly complimenting the Flytec range of instruments: Element Alto, Element Speed, Element Track and 6030!
