We have officially released our 502m firmware version featuring a new optimized distance to goal calculator with constantly updated information!

This firmware is a simplified and improved version of the previous one; for detailed information, take a look at the Changelog.

The Owner's Manual will be updated soon as well.

Firmware 501a

The new firmware that complies with the recent CIVL regulations change regarding the rules for tracklog registration is now available! These changes took place last February during the CIVL Plenary meeting in Austria.

With this new firmware, the Digifly will continue to be compliant with CIVL regulations, just as it has always been!

PORTUGUESE - Owner's Manual

For the past weeks Digifly USA has been working with Brazilian HG pilot Fabian Nahoum on the Portuguese version of our Owner's Manual!

This version goes together with the already existing English, Spanish and Italian versions on our Link & Downloads page!
It is very important for us to be able to provide the necessary tools to help our customers as much as possible  :-)

This is a note from our Translator, which we thought would be nice to share also as a way of thanking [obrigada Fabiano!]  him for the excellent and important work he has done:

"I've been flying hang gliders for 15 years and, I decided to compete ever since, a daunting prospect!, I thought my engineering background prompted me to get as technical as possible to try and have some traction over the very experienced pilots I was competing against.

Fortunately, I entered the comp scene about the same time that the Varios upgraded to GPS Integrated, so I was able to improve on my lack of experience by studying the somewhat complex manuals and using the plethora of information that was previously unavailable.

Then I was surprised to see much better pilots than myself come to me seeking instruction on the integrated Varios which they knew nothing about, and so began my history of being an instrument reference when it came to programming, updating, consulting integrated varios during comps and even the Scoring Committees would sometimes seek my help about technical issues.

From then, and after many years using 2 different instruments, I was beginning to feel that integrated Varios deserved a full upgrade, especially on the interface design and also some hardware items since technical problems were frequent and the price of service not cheap.

When I started studying the Digifly interface capabilities, I knew I had found the right instrument! The fact that it is fully customizable allied to the full automation in terms of page switching, something I wouldn´t have thought about previously, showed clearly that this instrument was on a class of its own!

Just like I did with the previous instruments, I dedicated a lot of time to studying the Digifly manual, something most pilots overlook, but that gives me an edge that can´t be really measured. So I quickly volunteered to translate the original Italian manual into Portuguese, something that would automatically guarantee many hours of studying.

I´m very excited that the innovation doesn´t stop and that the Digifly team is constantly improving on something that´s already state-of-the-art so I guess I´m going to have to continue studying frequently and hoping it will make me eventually a better pilot!!"

Last Stop: LA

The Digifly USA Fall Tour came to an end last weekend with our visits to Sylmar and Crestline.

On Saturday Oct. 22nd we drove out to Sylmar and were very lucky to be part of their "October Birthdays" event where we were able to hold our "DigiNight" with several pilots who already own the Digifly AIR, several others who bought one and some others who are now convinced that they want one in the near future!!!

There was some flying, delicious hot dogs, drinks, a fantastic atmosphere and, to top it off, we got to stay for their "Movie Night" and watch "The Great Lebowski" on a BIG screen out in the open!!!

On Sunday we drove to Crestline where we had arranged to meet with the pilots towards 5 o'clock; unfortunately, it was cold and started raining early and it kept raining all through the evening...

We still had the chance to meet with some pilots and spending the afternoon with special friends; then, ended up going out for Pizza and talk about the Digifly. It was also great to spend some time with our friends from Crestline sharing information on the AIR BT!

Thank you to the people who made this happen!

This was a perfect way of ending of this edition of our Fall Tour out west, bringing information about the Digifly AIR BT out to clubs, instructors and pilots so they are aware of this wonderful option for recreational and competition pilots!
