I've been saying this for the last year and no-one has listened.
SoftRF has a device called a SkyView that can receive the data from a Skyecho2 and display ADSB targets like it would Flarm ones, but it doesn't appear to add the Flarm info that the Skyecho2 should also be recieving, when you tick the box. I'm hopeful it will be combined at some point. That would give you a simple radar view of both without requiring either Skydemon or the additional Flarm licence.
Of course Skyecho2 doesn't transmit Flarm so you still need a separate device for that, and you are not getting the Flarm collision avoidance, just proximity alarms.
EasyVFR free and a Skyecho2 might be the cheapest option for combined ADSB IN/OUT and Flarm IN, but again I haven't tested it yet.
