Equip your club gliders

Without any complex features, the Helios is a dead-simple device which will never let you down.

Expand it with Flarm

A connection to the Flarm will give it access to GPS info, offering you navigation to take-off location

Warning of Flarm objects

A connection to Flarm will also give out Flarm warnings and show objects on the Flarm radar page.

LX AHRS compatible

Connecting an LX AHRS will open a hidden AHRS page on the Helios, expanding its functionality further.

Simple, yet packed with features

The little Helios is equipped with a built-in reserve battery, offering up to 3 hours of flying on battery. It is expandable with Flarm and other LX navigation CAN-based devices.

Plug and play accessories

Single CAN BUS cable accessories

LX navigation uses CAN BUS interface to deliver power and data to any device connected in the loop which means pilot can setup a new add-on within minutes.

Connect a small, compact AHRS module via single CAN BUS cable to Helios CAN port on the back of the device and AHRS page will appear.
Backup & memory

Backup battery is our standard

All our devices come with backup battery in case of electrical failure with at least 3 hours of battery juice inside.

We have been able to save numerous competition flights with backup battery power and made it a standard, because we understand how important it is, to have a backup.
