Default New Butterfly Vario

Hi,

I have just added the new Butterfly Vario to my web site. It is a very
impressive new vario with FLARM display (when attached to a FLARM), GPS
flight recorder, simple navigation, simple final glide, artificial horizon,
and many other very nice features. You can see details he

It will be worth informing your customers that fly in US sanctioned
contests that this instrument, as described, will not
be legal for use in US contests due to the incorporation of the
artificial horizon.

Early reports on this unit indicated the horizon can be disabled.
Don't know the means or whether such disabling would be considered
equivalent to having a conventional mechanical gyro instrument removed
from the glider. It seems the designers did consider the need though.

I raised the same issue when I first read about it and was told that
the horizon feature can be disabled for use in sanctioned contests.

It looks like a very interesting new instrument and I'm looking
forward to hearing some flight reviews.

I would like to see some real images of it, the CAD renderings are
cool, but nothing like seeing the "real" unit.

It will remain to be seen as to how it is disabled and how this is
confirmed so enforcement isn't a PITA.

Im debating this and the V7. Maybe even the clearNAV. With Flarm, nano and the butterfly vario I would have 3 certified loggers in my glider...so it feels a little overkill and very expensive. For another 1500 you can have an LX8000. Not sure if that $3300 price is going to fly. The V7 seems best at the moment.

and with Flarm, Nano, and Butterfly you still would need something
additional if you like a moving map. I'm thinking that someday when
my glider fund gets fat enough my Oudie and Nano coupled with the V7
should be a neat setup.

Butterfly would be sweet if you wanted to get into cloud flying. Add
a turn coordinator for a full IFR panel.

eventually my panel will consist of either the Butterfly or the V7
that will be talking to my PNA running LK8000 flight software. I do
have a Tru-Trak which adds more to the decision
making.............maybe a lot of used Tru-traks will be on the
market?

thanks for the link.
