Description

Digifly Air + Integrated ASI & BlueTooth

The Digifly Air has taken 3 years to be developed and not only is it fully functioned, it has been crafted in the typical Italian style. The big thing that stands out is the high-resolution display that looks great in bright sunlight and the big 4 operation buttons that were designed to be able to be used when wearing gloves. With its built in BlueTooth module, the Digifly Air can communicate with all smart devices and the units information can be fed to apps such as XC Soar etc. Internal sensors include a GPS module that is updated 10 times a second, a G meter for acro pilots (watch you don’t get yourself into trouble with this one!) and a magnetic compass that still works at high angles of bank. The instrument display can be designed exactly as you like it with the drag and drop software that is used from a connected computer. Other information such as track points etc can also be transferred this way.

The really unique feature of the Digifly Air though is its built-in and accurate airspeed indicator (ASI). Up until now, ASI’s on paragliders was only possible by using a trailing probe on a long cable hanging underneath the pilot. Digifly is the first manufacturer to solve this problem with a highly accurate built-in probe using some pretty clever software. Digifly says that this feature is accurate to 0.1km/h and it doesn’t really matter how the instrument is mounted. Having this extra information allows some additional advantages over other devices. Firstly it allows for into wind speed and glider calculations and secondly, the ability to show the actual wind speed and direction without having to do a 360-degree turn. This could be especially handy when setting up a landing approach. Finally, the Digifly Air has a rechargeable Li-Ion battery and comes with storage case and USB cable.
