AirHG & AirHG Cargo

 Last year in May we announced our latest model: the AirHG and this year we are ready to introduce the new member of the AirHG family, the AirHG Cargo!!!


The Cargo model besides all the super characteristics of the AirHG (super light weight, aerodynamic, long lasting battery, enhanced GPS Antenna, Pitot System, Classic & BLE Bluetooth modules, great LCD contrast and more...) has a specific spot for you to place a phone, in case you like to fly with one. Now, thanks to the fully operational Bluetooth on Digifly instruments, you will be able to use Apps such as XCTrack, XCSoar, FlySkyHy, LK8000, etc. and send the information from your Digifly's sensors directly to the Apps via Bluetooth. This feature is not new; however, many pilots out there haven't had the chance to realize this great option that our instruments offer. 

Moreover, the AirHG Cargo comes with an integrated Smart Battery and all the necessary cables to charge the battery and connect it to your phone!

 




Brackets are optional and sold separately when you buy an AirHG or an AirHG Cargo.

Paradise Airsports Upgrades Tandem Gliders

Short post on a side story.

Team Digifly USA had a blast yesterday during the test flight of this beautiful glider below. For several weeks now, they have been actively participating in one of Paradise Airsports' new projects: Upgrading their tandem gliders!

Paradise Airsports decided to upgrade from their Wills Wing Falcon 3s to the newer and improved model, the "Falcon 4" and added the stunning Monarch sail pattern to their order! Team Digifly USA has been involved in the entire process from assisting in purchasing the equipment, to picking up the glider boxes, to assembly and, of course, test flying!!!

We had to wait for a couple of days for that awaited flight due to terrible flying conditions in Central Florida; however, the day finally came when their first Monarch, finally went up in the air!


 The test flight was quite exciting and fun, look at their faces after landing:

Later that evening, the first official tandem flights:

FW Update: 610d

 New 610d firmware release!

As always, our firmware updates are free of charge and when you upgrade your instrument, you don't have to worry about losing your settings because they will not be affected by the upgrade!

Highlights:

  • New Acoustic Vario and Pre-Set Sound Profiles
  • New Audio McCready-Speed to Fly Function
  • New Bluetooth Management System (Android and iPhone Compatible)

 

Acoustic Vario:

It offers more sound programming options and we have added extra preset sound profiles for the user to choose from. This will ease the transition of pilots coming from other varios to the Digifly AIR.  For example, if you select sound profile DG3, your Digifly will sound like a Bräuniger / Flytec vario.


Audio McCready:

We have enhanced the McCready function on the Digifly AIR. Our previous firmware versions visually indicated the Speed to Fly using the McCready settings; now you will also be able to get an audio indication to guide you in glide!


Bluetooth Management:

We have improved the Bluetooth management software. The new "Bluetooth LE" option allows your Digifly AIR to connect with iPhone devices; for instance, you can send the AIR's Telemetry to a flying App like Flyskyhy.


As usual, please make sure your battery is charged before you perform the upgrade and take a quick look at the Owner's Manual to be sure you are doing it correctly. 

NOTE: On pg. 79 of the Owner's Manual (Ch. 14.2.1) you will find the "Firmware Update Procedure" information.


You can download the new firmware from our "Links & Downloads" page! You will also find the updated Owner's Manual and some extra info regarding this firmware on our fw changelog.

Digifly launches its NEW instrument the AIR HG. A new option for Hang Gliding pilots interested in using a more aerodynamic option.



The AIR HG has been designed for Hang Gliding pilots. This new design is the fusion of an aerodynamic and robust exterior with an internal hardware based on the AIR BT with Pitot. The AIR HG has a unique layout of its components making it specifically functional for hang glider pilots: offering louder vario sound, new buttons, repositioning the USB plug now a Type-C, the microSD slot, the GPS antenna and Pitot sensor, in order to maximize all of its features and GPS reception capability all of which creates a fully integrated instrument in an aerodynamic and resistant unibody-type structure that is light and nicer.
The AIR HG is the new instrument, the evolution of the AIR BT with Pitot System.

The AIR HG offers high-tech, top-quality and reliability -at an excellent price- as every Digifly product. It is possible to order your new Digifly AIR HG with Pitot System now!

AIR BT's Screen in the Sunlight

A couple of days ago, we saw an entry on the Oz Report (link HERE ) with the picture of a Flytec and a Naviter showing the screens in the sunlight and we thought it could be interesting to have a similar picture the Digifly AIR BT as well.

Oz Report Screenshot


 So here is our screen in the sunlight (the AIR's contrast setting is at 36%):



Note: The page portrayed on this picture is a customized non-competition XC Glide page (page 8: USR).

The Digifly AIR BT has a screen designed to provide excellent visibility in the sun light and the stronger the light, the better visibility you have.
