  • SkyBean + SkyDrop

SkyDrop GPS vario and SkyBean 2 mini vario is an ultimate combo that will never let you down during long XC flights.

Thanks to ultralight and compact design stuffed with many software functions, SkyDrop is suitable for paragliding and hang-gliding pilots from beginners to XC experts. Hike&Fly athletes love SkyDrop for its weight of 68g (2.4 oz) and with double battery only 88g. Multiple screens with widgets can be personalized to achieve maximum performance while flying. SkyDrop connected via Bluetooth interface is compatible with Android and iOS-based XC apps work as ultimate flight computer.

SkyBean 2 is a compact, very accurate, durable and reliable flying instrument. The main advantage of SkyBean 2 vario is an integrated USB interface that enables both PC and mobile phone connection. Also, the world's best baro sensor with 10 cm resolution is integrated into this instrument. Connection to PC allows you to set a custom audio profile with easy to use application. To get baro data forwarding to your mobile phone during the flight, SkyBean 2 can be connected to Android XC Track via OTG cable. The best way to use SkyBean 2 vario is a 3M ™ Dual Lock ™ Velcro system, which is five times stronger than a classic velcro. When vario is used with a phone, it is possible to fix vario to the cockpit. Alternatively, the harness belt is also a good choice. Of course, basic settings such as audio volume sink or lift thresholds can be set easily without a PC.
