Flymaster TAS Hang Gliding
Model Status: Past model
Flymaster TAS Hang gliding version
The hang gliding version of the TAS comes with a mounting accessory to attach the TAS probe securely to the hang glider frame. For example, as shown in the image below.
Package (hang gliding)
- TAS probe
- TAS hang gliding bracket
- TAS case
Connect TAS to Skytraxx 3.0 / 3.0 FANET+
The Flymaster TAS airspeed probe and temperature sensor can also be connected to the Skytraxx 3.0 or Skytraxx 3.0 FANET+ using the Skytraxx 3.0 Remote with Receiver.
Flymaster TAS: True Air Speed
"The tool for accuracy."
- Air-speed measurement from 5 to 180 km/h (1 km/h resolution)
- Temperature Measurement from -20 to +70 ºC (0.1 ºC resolution)
- Maximum communication distance: 5 m
Air speed measurement
Using airspeed, the Flymaster instruments can provide useful information for flight performance and safety, more accurately calculating wind speed and direction, and benefiting from additional features, such as Stall-alert, Speed-to-Fly, Netto Vario, etc.
The TAS probe uses a Pitot tube for determining airspeed. Consequently, it does not suffer from problems related to impeller type sensors, which rapidly loose accuracy due to dust and damage. Flymaster TAS probe connects to the Flymaster instruments using the built in wireless interface. These factors combined create a flexible robust solution.
|Pitot Tube Resolution||0.01 Pa|
|Temperature Sensor Resolution||0.01 ºC|
|Battery||1 x AAA cell (not included)|
|Autonomy||> 60 hours|
|Size||155 L x 92 W x 24 T mm (Length x Width x Thick)|
|RF Interface||With FCC or ETSI conformance for unlicensed use. Allows the wireless connection to any flymaster instrument up to 10m distance|
Flybubble note: When Flymaster released the TAS (then named "TASProbe" or "TAS Probe") they advertised they were working on a "Thermal sniffer" feature which would be "available soon" however this has not yet materialised About this they wrote: "Thermal sniffer (to follow). Get the help you always dreamed to find thermals with the built in thermal sniffer (available soon). The TASProbe also includes a fast (low thermic inertia) and high resolution temperature sensor, capable of detecting tiny variations in airflow temperature. By wirelessly getting the temperature data from the TASProbe, the Flymaster flight instrument can display and register the temperature during flight. By doing so, the Flymaster flight instrument can identify patterns which later can be used to evaluate the thermal potential of the area or spot thermal proximity. Combining temperature data with information from the renowned high accuracy Flymaster varios and GPS’s, the combined system can potentially detect nearby thermals, creating an unbeatable thermal hunting solution."
