The FP10 Air Data Engine and Variometer combination generates a complete air data set and, with an external GPS connected,
such as a Flarm, provides NMEA position plus NMEA air data to drive a variety of flight software installed on a PDA or portable PC.
This system is able to provide data to a portable PC that is normally only available from expensive flight computer systems. Data for calculation of wind vector without circling, barometric altitude and current lift/sink rate for reliable glide predictions.
A proprietary PC application is available for download. Fp10 Utility provides a "Virtual Panel" with both Barometric and QFE/QNH Altimeters, TAS, ASI, OAT and Variometer values, service data and settings.
The FP10-s5V also offers a high efficiency regulated power supply for providing +5 volt power to the PDA and GPS from an external +12 volt battery. Both regulated 5 volt and 12 volt battery supply is available at the GPS connector. Readily available DB9 connectors are provided for GPS and PC cables to satisfy the wide variety of connector combinations possible.
