At the begining of the season, I had dismantled the old C302 vario & have replaced it with a modern instrument : A XC Vario.
|The old generation out...|
|... replaced by a modern tool !|
XCVario is in the family of open source varios, with the interest that a very neat hardware can be purchased, while software is opened.
In the main features :
- Basic sensors covers pressures (static, total & antenna) & temperatures informations for standart altitude & speeds parameter construction
- Advanced sensors as options providing as well as 3axis acceleros & gyros (AHRS)
- Full Wifi & Bluetooth connectivity is offered
- It is compatible with XCsoar
- It is ready to receive FLARM information, with a contact display
This instrument has been used over 2021 flying season as a starting point for scientific investigations...
