- Skytraxx storage box
- Silicon protection
- Hook-and-loop sticky-back strip (see Mounting)
- USB-C cable
- Charger 100/240V*
* Supplied with a European plug and instructions in German. You can download the latest manual in English and other languages from the manufacturer's website. For your convenience we've provided links to the manual in the Downloads section below.
The rear of the Skytraxx 2.1 is a clear, flat space, ready to attach the included hook-and-loop sticky-back strip to. This means so you can then attach the unit to any suitable mount/surface with loop-fastener on top. For example, for paragliding, you could use a suitable paraglider leg or harness instrument mount or a flight deck (cockpit), as long as they have a suitable surface with loop-fastener on top.
At the time of writing, suitable mounts we can highly recommend for the Skytraxx 2.1 are the High Adventure Izipizi Harness Holder and Naviter Deluxe Leg Mount. These will hold the device securely, and in a good position for viewing and operation. If you'd rather have a matching Skytraxx mount, and don't mind paying more for the privilege, the Skytraxx Comfort Leg Holder is also highly recommended (similar to the Naviter Deluxe Leg Mount).

Flybubble review (of the full FANET+ version)
"Going on gut feel, I bought the demo unit before I’d finished the testing, because it makes me happy. The vario is spot on, and it’s mentally liberating using an instrument this clear, accurate, small and powerful. It doesn’t distract you with unnecessary information."
"If you appreciate lightweight simplicity and efficient power usage combined with robust operation and modern features like FLARM and automatic airspace updates, you’ll love the Skytraxx 2.1."
