Flytec 6030    (To order)   +£0.00

* Required Fields

The 6030 is a highly sophisticated flight instrument with integrated 16 channel GPS receiver, featuring a 1/4 VGA high-res display in a very aerodynamic and sexy housing, and an airspeed sensor that boasts a huge speed range of 12-180 mph!

The battery supply is two banks of AA rechargeable batteries. The smart battery technology allows the 6030 to auto-switch to the secondary battery bank when the primary bank is exhausted and since the batteries are now user replaceable you can always substitute alkaline if you discover at launch that you forgot to charge the the batteries.

The 6030 has an improved menu structure and terminology and can be set for several different languages. It has an optional Bluetooth connection to a cell phone for real-time tracking, and there is also an SD card slot for future expansion and a USB port for connection to a PC.

The pitot tube is easy to remove; the hole is then plugged with a rubber stopper (with a small opening to equalize pressure) to keep dirt from getting in the sensor.

For production reasons, actual colours may vary from those shown.

Function Overview

Vario Features

  • High precision pressure sensor for a very sensitive variometer
  • Analog display
  • Digital display
  • Averager
  • Sink alarm

Altimeters & Features

  • Altimeter 1
  • Altimeter 2 (relative)
  • Altimeter 3 (cumulated)
  • Barometric pressure

GPS Features

  • Up to 200 waypoints can be defined.
  • Up to 20 routes, each with 30 waypoints can be stored.
  • Automatic pilot notification, when an FAI/competition cylinder is passed (enter or exit).
  • Automatic or manual start and stop of data logging.
  • Up to 291 hours of FAI/IGC data logging memory at 60 sec record interval, 9 hours at 2 sec and 48 hours at 10 sec (recommended).
  • Automatically records a point upon entry/exit of  FAI sector/turn point  with acoustic and visual notification.
  • Each track log point records: longitude, latitude, altitude (pressure + GPS based), true airspeed, ground speed.
  • Competition routes; if you have a competition route active at launch, the IGC file will contain the corresponding C-records.
  • Final glide computer displays the expected height over target and height above best glide as well as to the five closest waypoints in memory

Screen & Display

  • Large, high contrast, graphic LCD display
  • 2-3/8" x 3-1/8"
  • Resolution: 320 x 240 pixels

Simulation Mode

  • Flights may be simulated and features can be tested.

User Defined Pages & Data Fields

Analog and digital displays can be set to the pilot's preferences.

Three user-pages with 7 user-selectable data fields per page can be chosen from:

  • Time (Time of Day)
  • Flt Time (Flight time since take-off)
  • Vario (Digital Vario)
  • Alt 1 (Absolute altitude)
  • Alt 1 (ft) (Absolute altitude in feet)
  • Alt 2 (Reference altitude, user-defined)
  • Alt 3 (Cumulated altitude gain during the flight)
  • FL (ft) (Flight level in feet. Not alterable)
  • QNH hPa (Air pressure in Hectopascals)
  • Gnd Spd (speed Speed over Ground)
  • Air Spd (Speed through the air)
  • Wind Spd (Wind Speed / Strength)
  • Wind Comp (Wind component: Groundspeed – True Air Speed)
  • Track (Flight direction / Course)
  • Bearing (Direction to selected Waypoint)
  • XT Error (Crosstrack Error. Shortest distance to active leg of a Route)
  • Dist WP (Distance to selected Waypoint)
  • Dist Goal (Sum of all sectors ahead of the pilot up to the last WP of a Route)
  • Dist Toff (Distance from take-off position)
  • Dist Cyl (Distance to Cylinder)
  • Dist therm (Distance back to last thermal)
  • Dist CTR (Distance to next CTR / controlled airspace)
  • L/D gnd (actual glide ratio over ground = Groundspeed/Sink)
  • L/D air (actual glide ratio = True Air Speed/Sink)
  • L/D req (glide ratio over ground required to reach WP)
  • L/D goal (Glide ratio over Ground needed to reach goal over several Waypoints in a Competition Route)
  • Alt a BG (Safety altitude above the best glide path)
  • Alt a WP (Arrival altitude above waypoint, acc. to McCready)
  • Alt a Goal (Precalculated arrival altitude over the last waypoint of a Route)
  • Temp (Temperature of circuit board)
  • SMS p/t (SMS pending/transmitted)
  • Timestart (Race / Start Cylinder time)
  • Dist StCyl (Distance to Start Cylinder)

Air Speed & Stall Alarm

  • McCready final glide calculator.

PC Connectivity & Software

  • USB PC interface cable
  • Optional Bluetooth connection to cell phone for real-time tracking (not yet implemented).
  • SD memory card slot.
  • FlyChart software (with professional license)

Battery & Power

Flytec 6030 Reviews

Good piece of flying Kit and very helpful staff on 18/12/2015
  • Star Rating
The Flytec is still probably the best choice for hang-gliding XC in the UK with good but not too complicated airspace detection and now handles over 300 way points.
Nancy and the rest of the team are really helpful and excellent service, got my unit to me a week early ready for a comp. Price was good too!
