GPS LS was created by Flymaster to provide novice and recreational paraglider pilots with a light and simple flight instrument with many of the basic features of more expensive flight instruments--minus airspace, route and competition features--for a more affordable price.

Package

  • Integrated hook-and-loop fastener on the back
  • Spare hook-and-loop fastener strip
  • Micro-USB cable

Flybubble note: The GPS LS comes with a strip of "hook fastener" on its back, which means that it can be mounted straight on to the Flymaster Harness Adapter and Flymaster Leg Strap mounts, or a suitable flight deck with "loop fastener" on, and does not require the use of the Flymaster Pocket.

Options

  • Flymaster Harness Adapter
  • Flymaster Leg Strap
