FlightView EFIS Basic Hardware Kit: FlightBox Pro EXP + Air Data Computer
NOTE: PRE-ORDER ITEM - SEE BELOW FOR SHIPPING SCHEDULE
The FlightView basic hardware kit contains the minimum set of hardware for the new FlightView EFIS. This kit includes:
- FlightBox Pro EXP - Flight Data Computer
- FlightBox ADC - Air Data Computer
- Cables, USB Hub, OAT probe
FlightView is the simple yet powerful new EFIS from OpenFlight Solutions, makers of FlightBox ADS-B. FlightView provides a full suite of flight and engine instruments, navigation tools, and advanced situational awareness functions. Built from a combination of off-the-shelf hardware and custom software, FlightView makes VFR flight safer, easier, and more affordable than ever.
What's In The Kit?
The kit includes all three of the major hardware components needed for a FlightView system:
The Flight Data Computer (FlightBox Pro EXP). The core of the system, the flight data computer provides attitude (AHRS), location (GPS), backup altitude, and ADS-B In (weather and traffic). It also serves as the hub, relaying data from other components to the FlightView display.
The Air Data Computer (ADC). The air data computer connects to your pitot/static system and provides airspeed, altitude, vertical speed, outside air temperature, true airspeed, and density altitude.
Both components will be shipped with power and data cables. The kit will also include a lightweight USB hub, a USB GPS receiver, and an OAT probe.
What's not in The Kit?
- You will need an experimental (E-AB, or E-LSA) aircraft. This system is not approved for use in certificated aircraft.
- You will need to provide your own recent model Apple iPad running iOS 12.0 or later. We recommend the 2019 iPad (10.2") as the minimum. These can be purchased starting at roughly $250. The app will run on older hardware but may be subject to heat or latency issues.
- You will need mounting hardware for the iPad. We offer a panel mount (our new FlightDock) with active cooling. If you prefer a portable mount, we recommend the X-Naut line of cooling cases.
- You will need a charger for the iPad. We recommend something that can output up to 3 amps.
- We recommend that you have some level of backup instrumentation - an analog altimeter and airspeed indicator or some sort of mini-EFIS.
Estimated Delivery Date
This is a pre-order. We expect to deliver the Flight Data Computers and Air Data Computers starting in January of 2020.
