Engineered for Easy Navigation
The GPS SD is the ideal instrument for flying non-competition XC flights. It has built in airspace avoidance and many other functions for optimising a great XC flight.
Don't get caught in airspace
With Flymasters 3D airspace warning system you will have ample information to navigate around restriced airspace zones.
Design your own instrument
Need more or less data on your flight screens, with Flymasters' unique Designer you can create the instrument you like and need for your style of flying.
Flymasters' unique thermal ball will help you find the thermal core quicker and the zero buzzer make sure don't fly past lift.
You can use GPSDUMP, or any other compatible tool, for Flight Sharing. Just connect your GPS SD to your MAC / PC (windows) and with a few clicks you can download and share your flights, in several well known databases like Xcontest, Leonardo, or DHV.
