Hi all, I am more than happy to pay the £30 on top for FLARM decoded in SD as I think glider traffic is a big issue, not easy to see and difficult for radar traffic service to report reliably as well (no height).
So I recently bought the Sky Echo 2 to use with SkyDemon- but when I air tested the combo proved unreliable due to a) disconnections between SD and SE2, coupled with another symptom 2) SE2 under-reporting ground speed eg showing 30kts when barrelling along @ 125kts GS.
uAvionix support is very responsive so far and have promised a software fix for the GS issue. They say that the disconnects are a “collaborative issue” between them and SkyDemon and don’t happen with other EFBs, so I’ve also written to SkyDemon to ask if they can help and are planning a fix on their side?
Interested to hear if others have seen the same - and if anyone out there is using SE2 with a different EFB to confirm that the problem doesn’t occur when not using SkyDemon..?
At this stage though I’ve spent nearly £500 all up and it’s not usable in flight (works great in the car at lower ground speeds less than 90kts..!)..!!
No doubt they’ll fix these early issues sometime soon and before the weather starts to improve - and the traffic increases ..!
