The Tool for Accuracy

A streamlined instrument with a built in airspeed measurement probe and a high resolution temperature sensor for thermal sniffing, boosting the performance of the Flymaster instrument range.


Air Speed Measurement

Using airspeed, the Flymaster instruments can provide useful information for flight performance and safety, more accurately calculating wind speed and direction, and benefiting from additional features, such as Stall-alert, Speed-to-Fly, Netto Vario, etc. The TASProbe uses a Pitot tube for determining airspeed. Consequently, it does not suffer from problems related to impeller type sensors, which rapidly loose accuracy due to dust and damage. Flymaster TASProbe connects to the Flymaster instruments using the built in wireless interface. These factors combined create a flexible robust solution.

Thermal Sniffer

Get the help you always dreamed to find thermals with the built in thermal sniffer (available soon). The TAS Probe includes a fast (low thermic inertia) and high resolution temperature sensor, capable of detecting tiny variations in airflow temperature.

By wirelessly getting the temperature data from the TAS Probe, the Flymaster flight instrument can display and register the temperature during flight. By doing so, the Flymaster flight instrument can identify patterns which later can be used to evaluate the thermal potential of the area or spot thermal proximity.

Combining temperature data with information from the renowned high accuracy Flymaster varios and GPS’s, the combined system can potentially detect nearby thermals, creating an unbeatable thermal hunting solution.


Hanggliding version

The hang gliding version comes with a mounting accessory to attach the TAS probe securely to the glider frame.

Paragliding version

For paragliding it is delivered with self orienting replaceable wind vane tail, and protection pouch.
