We are getting there guys, I know we’ve been saying this for the last 12 months but we are now at the final stages of development. The final PCB is now laid out and is with the case designer who is currently producing a prototype case to accommodate the screen, PCB and battery. We are installing all the components on another PCB for flight testing.

Please keep checking the website for updates and news or alternatively email us with your questions. The V3 will be an all-in-one solution flight instrument with large capacity battery, internal vario, sunlight readable screen and reliable GPS module with no track smoothing issues. This is a 100% ground up build and will ONLY be available through us and our network of resellers…..this is not a re-badged copy. We’re designing and building this in house, we initially thought we’d have it ready for now but it’s been a steep learning curve for us hence the delay. We’re working with some excellent people to make this happen and it’s going to be great!

As soon as we have production samples we’ll post the images on here….expect reviews shortly thereafter.

Thank you all for your patience
