Seagull PRO Wireless Sailplane Flight System, 900mhz
We are pleased to offer our Seagull Glide system, a revolutionary Variometer and Soaring Tool for model sailplanes.
With the Glide system, data previously available only on full sized gliders is provided to the pilot in real-time. Unlike other limited feature variometers on the market, the Glide system has a fully digital wireless link, data logging, tremendous expandability, and many other advanced features.
Unit comes pre-configured. No computer required!
Here are just a few of the features found only on the Glide system:
Varying tone variometer with advanced electronic Total Energy Compensation no cumbersome TE probe to install
Minimum sinkrate, climbrate, averaging period, and other flight monitoring parameters are fully adjustable while your plane is in the air
Full support for English and Metric units
Airspeed measurement from 2 to 290 MPH
Altitude measurement with 1 resolution
Sinkrate capture function for polar and L/D calculations
Receiver battery voltage monitoring included
Includes full featured data logger for recording and analyzing your flights with a PC
Tiny, lightweight onboard components require no separate battery
Small, self-contained LCD Dashboard with speaker and headphone jack
Fully programmable audible alerts can be set on all parameters.
Optional low cost, plug-n-play sensors available for RPM, temperatures, pack current and voltage, servo movements, G-Force, GPS, and more.
Receiver is a USB peripheral: plug the receiver into your PC to get full screen live display and recording
System includes: LCD Dashboard/Receiver, Onboard Black Box and Transmitter, Pitot tube, power cable, Windows CD with Virtual Instrument Display and Graphing, and instructions.
Hi Alan, I found that an Australian telephone company has contract rights to 916Mhz. Seagull produce a special model which operates from >916Mhz up for the Australian market. The model sold by HK appears to be non-compliant and illegal for use in Australia. Regards
As for letter of the law legal I'm not sure but the MAAA (Governing body & insurance provider) doesn't seem to recognize 900 MHZ so I would say probably not. AMAS may but what I've read of their codes it's vague at best so again you're probably going to have issues with insurance if you hit something or someone.
This will monitor only 1 voltage. Consider running a BEC rather than a separate rx pack.
17 thumbs up!
Excellent product, quite versatile and invaluable if you're into competition flight or simply want to optimize your plane performance. Very handy also as variometer and "thermal sniffer".

5 thumbs up!
Beware that this frequency is not allowed in France. This is the 3G and GSM frequency band. If you perturbe it probably you will be localized fast by authority. 433 Mhz is allowed, but less performant. Eagle tree distribute a plastic aerial that probably improve distance transmission.

I'am sure its a great product, BUT the airspeed does not work in the one I got. I use the vario mostly, but it would be nice to have the airspeed for TE compensation. Bit of a letdown that not all of it works. I,ve been right throught all the settings[with a computer], but it did not work from the start.
