XC-TrainerPro Technical Specifications

GPS receiver:
20 channel parallel, 2D/3D position (WGS 84),altitude, speed, direction, internal aerial

-1000m to +8200m, resolution 1m. At launch the GPS module provides an automatic altitude setting (AMSL)

Digital indication from –90.0m/s to +90.0m/s Analogue indication from 0 to 5m/s and from 5 to 9,5 m/s. Acoustic signal for climbing initiates at +0.1m/s. This may be switched off. Acoustic signal for sink can be set to initiate between –0.1m/s and –5m/s. Settings in MENU/SETTINGS/VARIO From –5m/s a sink alarm will be heard regardless of settings

The sensor is placed on the right hand side of the instrument. It measures in centigrade from –25 to +75 degrees, resolution 0.1 degrees

Flight recording in UTC. Display shows local time and elapsed time since launch

Flight data: 145 hours every second, 224 waypoints, 10 routes

Data transfer:
USB for charge, speed, PC / infrared

Power supply:
Rechargeable Li-Ion 3.7V/1800mAh. Operating time per charging app. 40 hours. The instrument is equipped with an “intellicharge” system. To protect the Li-Ion battery the XC-Trainer will shut itself down when before the battery is completely flat, saving all flight data beforehand.

(Only with speed sensor connected) 0 – 160km/h Total-Energy-Compensation (TEC) 0 – 90%

137x66x28mm, weight including battery 150g


XC-TrainerPro Firmware

Flight Recorder:
The integrated flight recorder saves position, altitude, clinb/sinkrate, SOG, heading and temperature every second for up to 145 hours

224 waypoints sorted in 14 lists with 16 waypoints each

10 routes each with up to 16 turnpoints
